Following the recall by Tyson for 11.8 million pounds of chicken strips contaminated with metal, Vienna Beef Ltd. has recalled more than 2,000 pounds of beef frank links that are also contaminated with metal.

The recall affects Vienna Beef’s 10-pound cases that contain Skinless Beef Frankfurters 6 8’s 10# with a case code of 013180 and a package code of 9122 on the label. The recall also includes 10-pound cases that contain Skinless Beef Frankfurters 6 11’s 10# with a case code of 013312 and a package code of 9122 on the label as well as 10-pound cases that contain Skinless Beef Frankfurters 7 9’s 10# with a case code of 013490 and a package code of 9122 or 9123 on the label.

The recalled beef frank links were produced on May 2, 2019, and have an establishment number of EST.1 inside the USDA mark of inspection. The recalled beef franks were shipped to food service locations in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin.

Labels of the recalled beef franks can be viewed here.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is urging food service locations to check their refrigerators and freezers for the recalled beef franks. They should not be consumed. The recalled meat should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
