The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Saturday, July 13, that Ada Valley Gourmet Foods Inc. is recalling roughly 3,500 pounds of raw ground beef meatloaf products.

The frozen, premixed raw ground beef meatloaf, produced on May 20, is potentially contaminated with broken metal bits and possibly other extraneous materials.
