retail news in context, analysis with attitude

CNBC reports that JBS USA, a North Carolina food processor, “has recalled more than 35,000 pounds of ground beef, some sold in Kroger stores, for possible contamination with plastic bits, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture … The recall comes after a consumer found blue, hard plastic pieces in one of the products, the USDA says.

“The department says there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of the products, which were produced March 22, 2018.”
