RECALL: Beef shepherd’s pie products recalled due to possible copper wire contamination

Lone Star Bakery, Inc. has recalled nearly 6,000 pounds of beef shepherd’s pie products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically copper wire pieces.

The frozen beef shepherd’s pie products were produced on April 1, 2022, with a use by date of Sept. 23, 2023. The following products are subject to recall [view labels]:

  • 8-oz. carton packages containing “BOOMERANG’S BEEF SHEPHERD’S PIE” with “USE BY 092323” on the label.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “Est. 31772” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distributor and retail locations in California, Florida, Georgia, and Texas.

The problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS that they received consumer complaints reporting entwined copper wire embedded in beef shepherd’s pie products with a use by date of Sept. 23, 2023.

There have been no confirmed reports of injury associated with consumption of this product, but FSIS believes the copper wire pieces could be sharp and possibly cause an injury. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
