Beef carcasses and boxes bear the establishment number “EST. 527” inside the USDA mark of inspection. Each box bears the case code number ending in “3” or “4”. The Meat Products were produced January 1, 2013 through January 7, 2014 and shipped to distribution centers and retail establishments in California, Florida, Illinois, Oregon, Texas and Washington.

According to the USDA, recalled Meat Products are adulterated, because they are unsound, unwholesome or otherwise are unfit for human food and must be removed from commerce. The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) has not received any reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact an MD or other qualified health care provider.

Please note: The USDA considers this a Class 1 Recall, meaning it represents a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.
