Huisken Meat Company pulls patties that may contain extraneous wood materials.

After uncovering foreign material in an incoming ingredient during the production process, Huisken Meat Company has recalled 89,568 pounds of beef patties. According to the USDA, the recall is due to concern that the products may be contaminated with “extraneous wood materials”. The Sam’s Choice Black Angus Vidalia Onion patties come in 2-lb boxes and were shipped to retailers across the country, including Walmart.

There have been no reports of adverse reactions, and the USDA is advising that consumers throw out the items or return them to the retailer.  

Beyond incidental contamination, are food companies prepared for intentional contamination?
