About this Deal
|Taco Bell is currently recalling around 2.3 million pounds of beef due to a possible contamination from metal shavings.|
On Saturday, October 12, three customers reported finding metal shavings in their food. As of now, there have been no reports of any adverse reactions caused by the contamination; however, the USDA is classifying it as a Class 1 recall, which describes it as "a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death."
This recall affects restaurants across 21 states in the eastern Midwest, northern Southeast, and Northeast regions (though no official list has been given).
The contaminated beef was produced by Kenosha Beef International in Columbus, Ohio and sent to five distribution centers in New Jersey, Michigan, New York, Ohio, and Virginia before being delivered to restaurants nationwide.
Taco Bell officially confirmed on October 14 that all affected meat was removed. They also released the following statement:
"Nothing is more important than our customers' safety, and nothing means more to us than their trust. As soon as we received the first consumer complaint, we immediately acted to remove the product from the affected restaurants and proactively worked with the supplier to inform the USDA of our steps to protect our guests."
