Ground Beef Recalled by the Thousands Locally

Central Valley Meat Company in Hanford is recalling more than 58,000 pounds of ground beef because the beef may contain small pieces of plastic.
The meat was intended for use in the National School Lunch Program.  The recalled meat was sent to distribution centers across California along with sites in Arkansas, Montana and Texas.
The products being recalled are 40-pound cases containing 10-pound chunks of "fine ground beef."  They were produced this past April.
We reached out to Central Valley Meat.  They weren't available for an interview, but issued this statement:
"Central Valley Meat is working diligently to identify and address the source of the problem.  We will strive to not only maintain, but improve the safety of our product, since food safety has always been our number-one priority."
We also checked in in with local schools.  Fresno and Clovis Unified both say they have not been affected by this recall.
So far, no illnesses have been reported from eating the meat.
