California-based company Central Valley Meat is recalling more than 58,000 lbs of ground beef that may contain small plastic bits, a report from the Huffington Post stated on Tuesday, September 24.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), they held an investigation of the alleged contamination after a consumer complained of the problem. The ground beef, which is believed to be tainted, was to be served in the National School Lunch Program. The Food Safety and Inspection Service said no injuries or illnesses were reported associated with the ground beef that contained plastic bits.

The general manager of the meat company said they will investigate and take action to determine the cause of the contamination.
