The recalled frozen ribs were shipped to retailers nationwide, as well as a Tuscon, Arizona Department of Defense facility.

The potential contamination was discovered on February 22 when Bellisio Foods began receiving consumer complaints from customers finding bits of hard plastic and glass in their rib-shaped patties. Fortunately, there have been no reports of illnesses or injuries over the consumption of the rib-patties.
