Over the weekend, Taco Bell recalled about 2.3 million pounds of beef after a customer discovered a metal shaving in an order.
According to CNBC, after hearing of the news, the Yum Brands chain voluntarily issued a recall of the beef on Friday. Halfway through Monday, 100% of the affected restaurants in 21 states across the eastern Midwest, northern Southeast, and Northeast regions had removed and thrown out the seasoned beef.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture, which regulates the safety of meat, said in a statement that there had not been any confirmed reports of bad reactions from consuming Taco Bell’s beef.
The recalled seasoned beef was made at a single plant location on one of two lines used to create the meat, reports say. Packages were sent to distribution centers in Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Virginia.
Taco Bell is reportedly one of the largest purchasers of beef in the U.S. Serving 290 million pounds of ground beef every year, according to its website.
