Texas beef buyers, beware.

Tyson Foods Inc is recalling 93,697 pounds of raw ground beef, saying it may be contaminated with a hard "mirror-like material," according to the USDA.

The beef was produced on November 2 and distributed to retail locations in Texas, including H-E-B grocery stores. After the company received several customer complaints about glass in their beef, they contacted the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and the product was cleared from the shelves.
