Weinstein Wholesale Meats, a family-owned business since 1959 based in a Chicago suburb, has recalled around 2,122 pounds of their burger patties that may be contaminated with pieces of white neoprene, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on Thursday.

It described the specific batch of beef burgers being recalled by Weinstein Wholesale Meats as coming in vacuum-sealed packs, containing two 10.7 oz “Grass Fed & Finished Beef Burger Patties” comprising 85 percent lean meat and 15 percent fat. This would suggest that some 3,174 burgers in 1,587 packs are affected.

The FSIS added that the product’s label would show a use/freeze-by date of April 11 this year—suggesting some may have already been disposed of or frozen—and would bear the U.S. Department of Agriculture establishment number 6987.
