NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The USDA is recalling 16,000 pounds of frozen beef patties.

The ready-to-eat products from Cincinnati-based AdvancePierre Foods may contain plastic.

The product was not sold in retail stores but distributed from an Iowa warehouse to institutions, including schools.

A food-service establishment complained it found soft, green plastic in a patty prompting the recall.

The company, which is owned by Tyson Foods, says it hasn’t received any reports of injuries or illness.
