A food processor that supplies beef to Kroger supermarkets has recalled more than 35,000 pounds of ground beef because they may be contaminated with hard plastic fragments, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions because of consumption of the beef, which was produced March 22, 2018.

The ground beef was sold in a variety of 1- and 3-pound packages, as well as one 15-pound case. The packages were shipped to distribution centers in Virginia and Indiana, which then supplied them to Kroger and other retail stores.

All of the recalled products carry a sell-by date of April 9, 2018. If you purchased ground beef from Kroger that you may believe to be contaminated, please return it to the store for a refund.
