Texas Foodmakers Recall Meat Containing Plastic Bits

For the second time in a week, a Texas food manufacturer is recalling its product over bits of hard white plastic in the food. On Tuesday, Goodman Food Products, based in Tarrant County said it’s recalling 17 tons of ground beef sold as hamburger patties and patty crumbles to Texas schools. The meat was sold under the brand name Don Lee Farms. It’s said to contain pieces of hard white plastic.

The announcement comes less than a week after Denison-based RuizFood announced it was recalling 25 tons of frozen burritos over the same issue. It also comes one month after Eddy Packing Co., outside San Antonio, recalled nearly 25 tons of sausages because of hard plastic bits.
