If you've purchased ground beef recently be sure to check the brand; some of it is being recalled. Laura's Lean Beef is sold at Hy-Vee, Target and Jewel Osco in the Quad Cities.

Our news partners at OurQuadCities.com says the meat is also packaged under the labels Kroger Ground Beef, Private Selection Angus Beef, Kroger Ground Sirloin, and All Natural Lara's Lean Beef.

A North Carolina processing plant is recalling the meat because it may be contaminated with bits of plastic. The company is recommending consumers dispose of the meat or return it to the grocery store where it was purchased.
