Nbcconnecticut.com is reporting that a ginormous amount of ground beef that was shipped to Connecticut schools is being recalled.

According to the U.S Department of Agriculture, the beef may contain hard pieces of plastic not to mention the beef was produced in August of 2017. This latest recall has nothing to do with the 228,000 pounds of Spam recalled at the end of May due to pieces of metal in some of the cans.

The USDA Foods for the National Lunch Program purchased the beef products that were sent to schools in Maine and Connecticut. The Texas-based products that were subject to recall are 40-lb cases of 'Don Lee Farms Fully Cooked Homestyle Beef Patties'. Schools that bought those beef products have been told not to prepare or consume them. As of yet, there have been no reported illnesses or injuries connected to the recalled meat.
