United Stats Food Safety and Inspection Service
Before making dinner tonight, you may want to check your Banquet label. The frozen meal maker’s parent company Conagra Brands, Inc. just announced that they are recalling over 135,000 pounds of Salisbury steak products after finding they may be contaminated with extraneous bones.
The recall affects family-style Salisbury steak and brown gravy products that were produced on March 10, 2018. The meals come in a 27-ounce plastic shrink-wrapped packages with “Banquet Family Size 6 Salisbury Steaks & Brown Gravy Made with Chicken, Pork and Beef — Grill Marks Added” printed on the front. The problem was discovered after the United States Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) received several complaints from consumers, along with three reports of minor oral injuries after consuming the meals.

Affected boxes have an establishment number of “P-115” located on the side panel. There is also lot code 5006 8069 10 05 and a “BEST BY” date of September 01, 2019 printed in that area. The retail distribution list is still being compiled and will be posted at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls when available.
If you have an affected product, do not consume it. Customers can either throw the contaminated food away or return it to the place of purchase. The FSIS urges anyone with any injury or illness concerns to contact their healthcare provider immediately.
