If you’ve purchased ground turkey meat over the last couple of weeks, check your fridge.

Ground turkey shipped to stores in Florida, including Publix, may contain metal shavings, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Prestage Foods, Inc. recalled 38,475 pounds of ground turkey because of concerns over the possible contamination, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Monday.

Plant employees first noticed the issue on Sept. 27 and again by a store that noticed metal shaving in a package of ground turkey that same day and notified the company, according to the USDA.
