Stopping in for a Quick Recall Notice - Beef Sticks

It's a busy weekend in this American Housewife's family (as usual!) but I popped online to read the headlines and saw a beef stick recall;

A Milwaukee sausage company is issuing a national recall of beef sticks because they may contain foreign material.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says Klement Sausage Co. Inc. is recalling nearly 2,800 pounds of beef stick products.

They are the 8-ounce packages of "Market Pantry Beef Sticks, Original" and have a "use by" date of March 1, 2012.

The USDA reports that the problem was discovered after a retail chain reported consumer complaints about finding hard plastic and pieces of glass in the meat. It has so far not received any reports of injury.

If I'm not mistaken, the Market Pantry brand is a Target store brand so heads up! If any of you bought this product be sure to return it.

My bigger concern? Sooo many of these have been bought recently to send in packages to our troops overseas! If you know someone who may have bought them to package in mailings for our troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, make sure they know to pull the beef sticks out and check the brand and use by date!!!
