They say breaking a mirror is seven years of bad luck. What if you break a mirror in 94,000 lbs. of ground beef? Apparently, consumers found mirror-like materials in their ground beef, all sourced from the Tyson plant in Amarillo, Texas. Don’t worry too much about it unless you like to stock up, as this mainly affects the five and ten-pounders of 73% and 80% ground beef, not the little one to three-pounders most people buy.
Tyson Foods has been in the spotlight lately as CFO John R. Tyson was arrested for breaking into a home while drunk and incoherent. Food prices are skyrocketing, the price of beef will only increase beyond 2024, and now we are facing massive beef recalls. All the affected beef was located in central Texas and had a freeze-by date of 11/25/2022. No one has gotten sick, but if you have any questions, you can call the Tyson Consumer Relations department at (800)643-3410.
It’s now quite possible that John R. Tyson may pick up the phone at customer service since his high-profile arrest.
