AdvancePierre Foods Inc., an Orange City, Iowa, establishment, is recalling approximately 10,668 pounds of beef patty products that may contain foreign materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.The product subject to recall is 12-pound packages containing eight 24-ounce bags of H-E-B Fully Cooked Lean Burgers with the H-E-B item code 100538 and EST. 2568 inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced on June 7, 2011 and distributed to H-E-B stores in San Antonio, Texas.

The problem was discovered through a consumer complaint brought to the attention of H-E-B, one of AdvancePierre Foods' retail customers. The consumer noted metal fragments found on the outer surface of a ready-to-eat beef patty product. The problem may have occurred due to production equipment problems associated with a char-marker that caused a metal surface to overheat and shed small flakes on to the product. FSIS has not received any consumer complaints or reports of injury at this time.
