KENOSHA, Wis., Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Kenosha Beef International is recalling packages of frozen hamburger patties that may contain pieces of a broken gasket, government officials said Friday.

The recall includes 37,600 pounds of ground beef sold as two-pound cartons of six patties of Sam's Choice Fireside Gourmet Black Angus Beef Patties Bacon and Aged Cheddar, a release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said.

The products were produced June 11 and have a "best if used by" date code of 120812B, along with establishment number "EST425B" printed on the packaging. The beef patties were distributed in Indiana, Maine, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Wisconsin.

Wisconsin-based Kenosha Beef International said they have received no reports of injury or illnesses associated with the consumption of the beef. The recall was prompted by a consumer complaint.
