Consumers are being urged to throw the meals away or return them to the place of purchase.6 tons of Boston Market’s boneless pork rib patties have been recalled because they might be contaminated with pieces of glass or hard plastic.

The contaminated patties were found in the Boston Market home Style Meals with the label of Boneless Pork Rib Shaped Patty with BBQ Sauce & Mashed Potatoes, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The recall is classified as a “Class I Recall” as the USDA believes “there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.”

“The problem was discovered when the establishment received consumer complaints of glass or hard plastic extraneous material in the rib shaped patty,” the USDA said in its statement.

The meals, distributed by the Ohio-based food manufacturer, Bellisio Foods, were shipped nationwide, as well as to a Department of Defense facility located in Tucson, Arizona.

“There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions or injuries due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider,” the statement by the USDA added.

The USDA was notified about the issue on Friday.

Customers can check the label of their frozen meals, by matching the “Best Buy” dates of December 7, 2019 (lot code 8341); January 4, 2020 (lot code 9004), January 24, 2020 (lot code 9024) or February 15, 2020 (lot code 9046). Meals being recalled also have the “EST. 18297″ stamped on the end carton flap of the package.

Consumers are being urged to throw the meals away or return them to the place of purchase.
