A Los Angeles County food provider is recalling more than 48,000 pounds of meat that may contain metal scraps.
The recall covers frozen, ready-to-eat sukiyaki beef and gingered pork products from Unibright Foods Inc. of Bell Gardens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.
Specifically, the firm is recalling 2.2-pound packages of Mishima sukiyaki beef with the establishment number “EST.1163” inside the USDA mark of inspection and package ID number 15069.
Also affected are 1.7-pound packages of Mishima gingered pork with the establishment number “EST.1163” inside the USDA mark of inspection and package ID number 15059.

The beef was produced between Aug. 12 and Dec. 16, 2014; the pork was produced between Aug. 5 and Aug. 6, 2014.
The recall comes after an Illinois restaurant found a stainless steel wire in Unibright’s sukiyaki beef, the Agriculture Department said.
