Taco Bell issued a press release on Tuesday asserting the voluntary recall of two.three million kilos of seasoned beef from eating places in 21 states nationwide. The recall was issued after a buyer reportedly discovered a metallic shaving of their meal, so that you may need to skip the Crunchwrap and Quesarito in your subsequent lunch break. Following the preliminary discovery of the contaminated beef on Oct. 11, Taco Bell has since shut down the provision chain and eliminated the seasoned beef from eating places and distribution facilities, inflicting a scarcity of beef at a number of of its places.
“As of 9 a.m. PDT, Monday, October 14, 2019, 100 percent of the affected restaurants in 21 states across the eastern Midwest, northern Southeast and Northeast regions impacted have confirmed product has been removed and discarded,” in accordance with a press launch. The 21 states affected embrace Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Virginia, Vermont, West Virginia, and Washington DC.
“Nothing is more important than our customers’ safety, and nothing means more to us than their trust,” mentioned Julie Masino, president of the North America Taco Bell Corp. “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.”
“There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products,” in accordance with a press release by the USDA. “Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.” Shoppers with questions can contact Taco Bell customer support representatives at 1-800-TACOBELL (1-800-822-6235) Monday via Friday from eight a.m. to four p.m. PT, or contact Dennis Vignieri, president and CEO of Kenosha Beef Worldwide at (262) 859-2272, ext. 1205.
