EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – The ShopRite of English Creek, located at 3003 English Creek Ave., has initiated a voluntary recall of all store-made ground meat produced and sold on Wednesday, Nov. 21.

There is a possibility that these products may contain small pieces of the black tray lining pad used in the packaging.  All varieties of ground meat processed in the store that day are being recalled, including ground beef, ground pork and meatloaf mix.  All other meat products sold at ShopRite are not affected by this recall.

“We are advising customers who purchased any of these products at the ShopRite of English Creek to return them for an immediate refund or replacement,” stated ShopRite spokeswoman Karen Meleta. “Although the pieces of the plastic tray liner may not cause an immediate health risk if ingested, we wanted to alert the public so appropriate steps can be taken.” 

No injuries related to the recall have been reported.

ShopRite has reached out to its ShopRite Price Plus Club customers who have purchased this product to alert them to the recall via phone.

This is an isolated incident and affects only the ShopRite of English Creek. ShopRite requests that customers check the labels of any ground meat products they may have purchased from this store and may still have at home.  Customers are advised to return any affected products for a full refund or replacement.  Pre-packed ground meat products and ground meat sold in other ShopRite stores in the area are not affected by this recall.
