According to the USDA, Ruffino Meats & Food Service has recalled an estimated 45,985 pounds of Beef Trimming Products due to possible adulteration. The product labels include a phrase, “For Cooking Only”, indicating they are intended for further processing to apply a full lethality at a federally inspected establishment. Because the products were distributed to non-federally inspected establishments where it cannot be verified that sufficient further processing occurred to remove foodborne pathogens that could have been present, these products must be removed from commerce.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure small children and pets can’t access the suspect food.

If you have any questions about this recall notification, please contact Terry Wiese, Plant Manager at Ruffino Meats & Food Service at 1-979-776-5685.
