Texas groceries had likely removed by Sunday morning all ground beef from store shelves that was subject to a recall due to possible contamination from tiny pieces of metal, an executive at the company which recalled the product said.
Sam Kane Beef Processors, based in Corpus Christi, Texas, recalled nearly 91,000 pounds of ground beef shipped between Sept. 9 and Sept. 18 to Texas retail outlets, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said in a news release on Saturday.
Consumers in four separate incidents reported finding pieces of metal about 3 mm in size in beef products, and one of them reported getting a chipped tooth, the USDA said. The USDA classified the health risk from the metals as low.
The stores began removing the meat from shelves immediately and it is likely none remained on Sunday, said Herb Meischen, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Sam Kane.
The products subject to recall were 3-pound packages of HEB ground chuck, 5 and 10-pound packages of HEB ground beef and 10-pound formed patties made from Sam Kane Beef Processors ground chuck, according to the USDA.

Impeachment hearing flies off the rails as GOP lawmaker accuses House Judiciary counsel of bribery
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) disrupted testimony during Monday's impeachment hearing and suggested the Democratic majority's attorney had bribed the House Judiciary Committee to get his job.
Barry Berke, who has served as the special oversight counsel to the committee since February, was asking Republican counsel Stephen Castor about President Donald Trump's state of mind toward Joe Biden when Gohmert interrupted.
"The gentleman is not recognized," said committee chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY), banging his gavel. "Mr. Berke has the time."
Gohmert complained that Nadler was ignoring House rules by allowing Berke to present an opening statement before the hearing and then question Castor.
Inspector general found ‘no evidence of political bias’ in Trump-Russia probe: report
Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report on the origins of the probe into the Trump campaign's contacts with Russia has found that there was no evidence of political bias on the part of law enforcement officials who began the investigation.
The Associated Press reports that the report "is expected to conclude there was an adequate basis for opening one of the most politically sensitive investigations in FBI history and one that Trump has denounced as a witch hunt."
The IG's report also found that former British spy Christopher Steele, whose infamous dossier on Trump featured salacious allegations about the president and Russian prostitutes, played no role in the opening of the probe, despite claims from Trump's Republican allies who argued that it was central to the investigation.
