JBS USA, recalling nearly 5,000 lbs. of ground beef products that may contain shredded pieces of Styrofoam packaging.

The recall affects 2-lb. packages of ground beef labeled "Certified Angus Beef Ground Chuck 80% Lean 20% Fat". Establishment number "EST. 34176" will be found inside the USDA inspection mark. North Carolina-based JBS USA issued a recall Tuesday for the packs with a "7/15/17" production date and case code 541640.

These items were shipped to a distribution center in North Carolina for further distribution.

A release announcing the recall did not specify which retailers sold the product.

Some of the styrofoam trays the beef was packaged on were shredded and ended up in the meat, the USDA said. The news release did not say who made the company aware of the shredded Styrofoam.

There have been no confirmed reports of injury, illness or adverse reactions due to consumption of the beef.

If you purchased any ground beef affected by the recall, you should not eat it and discard it immediately.
