According to the FSIS, the problem was discovered after the company received complaints from four restaurants that the meat had a chemical taste. On investigation, the company said its mineral oil supplier sent them a drum of non-food-grade mineral seal oil labeled as food grade mineral oil, and the non-food-grade oil was applied to food contact surfaces.

The FSIS said that there haven’t been any reports of adverse reactions from eating the meat.
