The recall was issued by Washington Beef LLC on Saturday, saying it affects ground beef chubs produced on Dec. 27, 2018, which have a “use or freeze by” date of Jan. 20, 2019.

Approximately 30,260 pounds of ground beef are affected, says a news release posted on the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) website.

The news release said:

“FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen in consumers’ freezers.Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.”
