Shaw's Supermarkets Initiates Limited Recall of 75% Lean Ground Beef

West Bridgewater, MA (SafetyAlerts) - Shaw's Supermarkets, Inc. said today it is voluntarily removing from sale Shaw's 75% Lean Ground Beef that was processed and sold only at the Garden City - Cranston, RI store. The recalled product has the following sell-by-date on the package: 02-02-01. The product is being recalled because a Cranston Store Associate found a piece of blue plastic in the ground beef meat grinder.

The company stated this is an isolated incident and only impacts the 75% Lean Ground Beef that was processed and sold in the Garden City - Cranston store yesterday, January 31st. This recall does not impact Ground Beef sold at any other Shaw's Supermarket Store throughout New England.
