ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. (WTVD) -- The grocery store chain, Food Lion, is recalling its in-store prepared ground beef because it may contain plastic.
It was sold at the location on Hunter Hill Road in Rocky Mount.
It was accidentally introduced during the grinding process at the store.
The affected beef was produced Tuesday with a sell-by date of July 13.
Customers who bought the beef should not eat it and may return it to the store for a refund equal to double the purchase price.
Last week, Food Lion announced a similar recall involving a Zebulon store.
The store sent a recall notice stating the Food Lion at 1114 Wakelon Street needed to recall the beef produced on July 6, 2023, with a sell-by date of July 9, 2023, due to possible contamination with foreign material.
According to Food Lion, the recall only affects the in-store prepared ground beef sold at the Zebulon store location with the aforementioned dates.
