Agriculture Department Recalls Meat Product Sold to Schools 

“White-like metal” found in the meat. 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture issued a recall for between 90,624 to 196,019 pounds of ready-to-eat meat after the Food Safety Inspection Service found a “white-like metal” in the product that was being sold to school districts in Minnesota, Illinois, and Texas.  

The frozen meat packaged as “bone-in goat” in various forms is part of a sambusa product, a Somali dish in a pastry mixed with onions and spices. Investigators said it may be contaminated with extraneous metal. 

The USDA stated, “The problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS that it received a report from a school that food handlers found thin, wire-like metal on the outside of the product during preparation. The material was not reported to be embedded in the product.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Administrator Paul Kiecker as he manages the Food Safety and Inspection Service.
  • For Secretary Vilsack as he oversees the Department of Agriculture.
  • For the observation skills of food handlers in the schools to provide safe lunches for students.
