The products have establishment number “EST. P-7345” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

FSIS said the problem was discovered after consumer complaints reporting pieces of blue plastic embedded in the raw turkey. There have been no confirmed reports of injuries due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS said it's concerned some product may be in consumers' freezers and are urging people who bought the products not to eat them and to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
