H-E-B has recalled nearly 94,000 pounds of Hill Country Fare (HCF) and Tyson-branded ground beef products over concerns of possible foreign matter contamination.

Tyson Fresh Meats, Inc., an Amarillo, Texas establishment, is recalling approximately 93,697 pounds of raw ground beef products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically reflective mirror-like material,” the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Wednesday.

H-E-B said the recalled products include 5- and 10-pound chubs of HCF 73% ground beef and 80% ground chuck sold at H-E-B, Joe V’s, Mi Tienda, and Central Market stores in Texas. The affected products have a freeze-by date of 11/25/2022.

The issue was brought to Tyson’s attention after having received a number of consumer complaints of “mirror-like” material in various ground beef products purchased from Texas-based grocery stores. The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 245E” on the seam of the chub, according to Tyson.

“There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider,” Tyson said in the news release.

“All products related to this recall have been removed from store shelves. No other ground beef products are affected by this voluntary recall,” H-E-B said.

H-E-B customers who purchased any of the products related to this recall can return them to the store for a full refund. A complete list of impacted products can be found here. Customers with any questions may contact H-E-B Customer Service at 1-855-432-4438 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST.
