J.T.M. Provisions Company, based in Ohio, says the frozen, ready-to-eat beef chili with beans was produced on February 27, 2023, and then shipped to distributors in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, California, Massachusetts, and Wisconsin.

The problem was discovered after the company received a customer complaint about semi-rigid white plastic material found in the chili.

U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service is concerned that some product may be in school freezers or refrigerators. School officials who purchased the chili should not serve it.

The following product is subject to recall:

  • 30-lb. case of “CHILI WITH BEANS” containing six 5-lb. boilable bags of “CP5309 CHILI WITH BEANS” with lot code 23058 printed on the bag, and “February 27, 2023” and lot code 23058 printed on the case.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 1917” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the case.

Photos of the labels can be found on the USDA website.

No injures reported

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions or injuries from the chili.
