CHICAGO — The Chicago-based Vienna Beef is recalling approximately 2,030 pounds of beef franks over potential metal contamination.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) over the weekend said the company’s beef frank items are subject to a Class 1 recall, meaning consumption can cause serious health problems.

The beef frank links items were produced on May 2, 2019 and shipped in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 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 problem was discovered by the establishment and reported to FSIS. There are no reports of reactions from consuming the products at this time, but FSIS said they should be thrown away or returned.
