On Saturday, Vienna Beef Ltd. recalled roughly 2,030 pounds of beef frank links that are being sold in Wisconsin.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said the products may be contaminated with metal and other materials. Vienna Beef discovered and reported the issue to FSIS.

The company’s beef frank items are subject to a Class 1 recall, which means consumption can cause serious health consequences. The items were shipped to Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin.

According to the release, the following items may be contaminated:

10-lb. cases containing “Skinless Beef Frankfurters 6” 8’s 10# with case code 013180 and package code 9122 represented on the label
10-lb. cases containing “Skinless Beef Frankfurters 6” 11’s 10# with case code 013312 and package code 9122 or 9123 represented on the label
10-lb. cases containing “Skinless Beef Frankfurters 7” 9’s 10# with case code 013490 and package code 9122 or 9123 represented on the label

There are currently no reports of reactions from consuming the products, but FSIS warned that those who purchased the items should either throw them away or return them. Anyone with concerns is encouraged to contact a health care provider.
