The problem was discovered when the establishment notified FSIS that sand and black soil were found in some of their products. The source of the contamination is currently under investigation by the establishment and law enforcement.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

GNP said that the contamination was "linked to an isolated product tampering incident that occurred at the company's Cold Spring processing plant the week of June 6."
