Taco Bell beef recalled due to metal shavings

Posted: Updated:

Taco Bell has recalled about 2.3 million pounds of seasoned ground beef after multiple customers found metal shavings in their food. 

The recall impacts restaurants across 21 states in the Midwest, Northeast and Southeast. 

"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," Julie Masino, Taco Bell North America President said in a statement.

The beef came from Ohio-based manufacture Kenosha Beef International. 

The USDA was notified on Oct. 12 and so far there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. 

If you have any questions, call 1-800-TACOBELL (1-800-822-6235) Monday through Friday 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Eastern Time.
