ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) Taco Bell has recalled about 2.3 million pounds of beef after a customer reported finding metal shavings in their menu item.

The product was sent to distribution centers in the following states: Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Virginia.

The contaminated products have been removed and discarded.

“Nothing is more important than our customers’ safety, and nothing means more to us than their trust,” said Julie Masino, President of North America, Taco Bell Corp in a press release. “As soon as we received the first consumer complaint, we immediately acted to remove the product from the affected restaurants and proactively worked with the supplier to inform the USDA of our steps to protect our guests.”

There have been no reports of adverse reactions or injury.
