TIMONIUM, Md. — ShopRite of Timonium located at 37 W. Aylesbury Road has initiated a voluntary recall of all store-made ground beef produced and sold on the afternoon of October 6, 2019.

According to the store, there is a possibility the meat may contain small metal fragments due to a mechanical problem with the grinder.

The recalled products include all store-made packages of 80, 85, and 93 percent lean ground beef with a sell-by date of Sunday, October 6. No other products sold at ShopRite are affected by the recall, and no injuries related to the recall have been reported.

Pre-packaged ground meat products and ground beef sold in other ShopRite stores in the area are not affected by the recall.

ShopRite is asking customers to check the labels of any ground beef products they may have purchased from the store and still have at home. Customers can return those products for a full refund or replacement.
