If you live in Texas and are about to sink your teeth into a juicy burger, think twice.

Sam Kane Beef Processors of Corpus Christi is recalling almost 100,000 pounds of ground beef and formed patties shipped to retail outlets in Texas due to possible foreign matter contamination.

Although this is classified as a low health risk at a class II recall, small pieces of metal approximately 3 millimeters in size are to blame for at least one chipped tooth and several customer complaints.

The recall affects packages of HEB ground beef and Sam Kane Processors ground chuck patties with an establishment number 337 between 3 and 10 pounds, produced between Sept. 9 and Sept. 18, 2014, and with use-by dates between Sept. 28 and Oct. 8, 2014.

Check with USDA Food Safety and Inspection Services for more details, including those labels affected.
