J.T.M. Provisions Company based out of Harrison, Ohio, has issued a recall of over 14,525 pounds of fully cooked not shelf stable pulled barbecue beef products that they fear may be contaminated. It is feared that the pulled beef product may have pieces of rubber mixed inside.
The problem was found after the company received two complaints from customers who discovered rubber in the product. There have not been any reported injuries or adverse reactions at this time. The product does pose a choking hazard with the rubber bits, making this a potentially deadly mistake.
The product in question has the establishment number “EST. 1917” insdie of the USDA mark of inspection, and were shipped to Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio where they were sold in retail stores.
The contaminated product is a 14 ounce sealed plastic tray covered with a purple sleeve contained pulled/shredded barbequed beef labeled “BAR-B-Q Sauce With Pulled Beef” with a Julian pack date of 17266 printed on the label.
Consumers with questions are welcome to contact the Vice President of J.T.M. Provisions Company, Joe Maas, (800) 626 - 2308 if they have any questions or comments.
