When buying groceries, the last thing that comes to mind is the chance that your fresh food will make you sick. Unfortunately, though, food recalls happen all the time. Foodsafety.gov reminds us if there’s any reason to believe a food may be contaminated and make consumers ill, it must be taken off the market. The following products were recalled this year. Check your fridge and pantry for these foods.
1. JBS USA ground beef
We have bad news for North Carolina natives who purchase JBS ground beef: There’s been a massive recall. WRAL reports nearly 5,000 pounds of ground beef may be contaminated with packaging materials, like shredded styrofoam. The recalled beef was produced back in July, so check your frozen meats if you think you may have bought some around this time.
Next: It’s time to check your beans.
