Before you throw those beef frank links on the grill this weekend, be sure that they haven't been recalled. According to the USDA, Vienna Beef is recalling over 2,000 pounds of beef frank links because they may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically metal".

Here is the list of specific packages of Vienna sausages that are being recalled:

  • 10-lb. cases containing “SKINLESS BEEF FRANKFURTERS 6” 8’s 10#” with case code 013180 and package code 9122 represented on the label.
  • 10-lb. cases containing “SKINLESS BEEF FRANKFURTERS 6” 11’s 10#” with case code 013312 and package code 9122 or 9123 represented on the label.
  • 10-lb. cases containing “SKINLESS BEEF FRANKFURTERS 7” 9’s 10#” with case code 013490 and package code 9122 or 9123 represented on the label.

The products subject to recall were produced on May 2nd and bear the establishment number “EST. 1” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The good news in all of this is that the products were shipped to food service locations in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin. However, you might want to double-check just to be sure!
