The products were produced on March 20 and have the establishment number EST.562M inside the USDA inspection mark.

The recall — which was announced Tuesday — was issued after there were two complaints of pieces of hard green plastic in the ground beef.

JBS Plainwell recalled the items as a precautionary measure in cooperation with the USDA.
