HEB recalls almost 38 tons of fresh beef products

Posted: Updated:
  The HEB supermarket chain is recalling almost 38 tons of fresh beef products over concerns that it might be contaminated with metal fragments from a failed bearing.

The recall was announced Thursday by the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It includes vacuum-sealed packages of "Seasoned Beef Skirt Steak for Fajitas," `'Seasoned Beef for Carne Guisada," `'Seasoned Beef for Fajitas," `'Mi Comida Seasoned Beef Skirt Steak for Fajitas" and "Seasoned Texas BBQ Rub Beef Skirt Steak" with sell-by dates of July 4-5. It also includes foam trays of "Beef for Stew," packed June 9-28 or with a sell-by date of June 24.

HEB employees found metal shavings in products on June 10, and an investigation traced them to a failed bearing in auger machinery.
