The food products bear the shipping number of either #2014110262 for the Beef products or #1880 for the Pork products. The products were shipped to locations in California, Washington and Arizona.

The problem was discovered when an USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) inspector noticed that some of the inspection labels had been photocopied, and a pursuant investigation discovered that some of the labels had been applied after hours without the presence of a USDA inspector. The investigation is ongoing and this release is being issued to protect the public.
