Salisbury Steaks Are Being Recalled—Here’s What to Do
If you bought this Salisbury steak, please return it ASAP!
If there’s a Banquet Salisbury Steak in your freezer, please check the label because it could be subject to recall. Conagra Brands, Inc. has announced the recall of 135,159 pounds of a Salisbury steak product that may be contaminated with stray pieces of bone, according to the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service.
What to Look For
The recalled boxes were produced on March 10, 2018, and shipped to retail locations nationwide. The specific product to check for is a 27-oz. package that you would have picked up in the frozen foods section of your grocery store. Here are the details:
- Labeled “Banquet Family Size 6 Salisbury Steaks & Brown Gravy (MADE WITH CHICKEN, PORK AND BEEF)”
- Steaks on the package have grill-marks
- Lot code 5006 8069 10 05 and a BEST BY date of “SEP 01 2019”
- Number “34715” inside the circular USDA inspection mark.
If you have any question as to whether what’s in your freezer is subject to recall, you can do a quick check by comparing with these Banquet labels.
Level of Risk
Conagra has already received several consumer complaints and three reports of minor oral injury, according to the USDA. This is definitely not a recall we’d ignore–it’s always best to err on the side of caution.
Your Next Steps
The most important thing you can do is a “freezer check,” to make sure these Salisbury steaks aren’t hiding behind something. (Is your fridge/freezer too crowded?
