Tons of Beef Patties Recalled By Tyson Subsidiary

WASHINGTON – More than 10 tons of ready-to-eat beef patties are being recalled by a Tyson Foods subsidiary because they may contain pieces of purple plastic.

Advance-Pierre Foods is recalling the pattie after the U.S. Department of Agriculture received complaints. There are no reported injuries or illnesses.











The patties in question were produced last November in Oklahoma and were distributed to schools nationally.

However, the USDA said it did not include the burgers as part of the national School Lunch Program. Officials said anyone who purchased the burger patties should throw them away or return them to where they bought them.
