BALTIMORE, Md. (WJZ) — Check your freezer: ConAgra Foods is recalling nearly 200,000 pounds of frozen chicken and beef dinners because they may be contaminated with traces of metal.

Metal fragments, ranging in size between two and nine millimeters in diameter, could be lurking in the sauce of the frozen entrees, which are produced by the Russellville, Arkansas-based company, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reports.

The dinners were produced between May 31 and June 22.

Here’s a list of products covered by the recall:

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 233” or “EST. P-115” inside the USDA mark of inspection, the agency reports. These items were shipped to distributors and retailers across the country.

An employee initially noticed the presence of metal fragments July 1. ConAgra says the metal was found in a sugar, which is used in the sauce, that is provided by a supplier.

So far, there have been no injuries or allergic reactions reported as a result of the contamination, according to the USDA. If you’ve purchased any of the recalled entrees, you’re urged to throw them away or return them to where you bought them.
