The Shoprite is located at 501 South Walnut Street, Wilmington, De 19801.

    This ground beef was sold in Delaware to consumers of the Shoprite of Christiana Crossing, Wilmington. This is the only Shoprite affected by the recall. The sell by date appears on the label.

    The problem was discovered by a consumer who notified the store that there were black and white pieces of plastic in the ground beef.
