90,000 Pounds of Beef Patties Recalled

Nearly 90,000 pounds of beef patties are being recalled by a Minnesota company due to possible contamination with wood materials.

The recall by the Huisken Meat Co. is for 2-pound boxes of Sam's Choice Black Angus Beef Patties with 19 Percent Vidalia Onion. The patties were produced between Nov. 19, 2015, and Dec. 9, 2015, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said.

The products were shipped to stores nationwide.

There are no confirmed reports of injury or illness, according to FSIS.

Consumers who bought the recalled patties should throw them away or return them to the place of purchase. For more information, consumers can call the company at 618-857-4011.
