On Saturday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that 90,987 pounds of ground beef from Sam Kane Beef Processors in Corpus Christi, Tx. had been recalled after several consumers found pieces of metal inside the meat.

The pieces of metal were reportedly around 3mm and caused one consumer to chip a tooth.
