A Kroger supplier, JBS USA, Inc. is recalling more than 35,000 pounds of raw ground beef that may be contaminated with hard plastic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reports. ETFs with exposure to Kroger are reacting.
The problem was found after reported complaints from a consumer who found blue, hard plastic pieces in one of the products.
The meat was shipped to distribution centers in Virginia and Indiana to be sold in retail stores. Health officials are concerned that some consumers may have these products in their freezers at home.
