According to the USDA, Crider Foods has recalled an estimated 525,717 pounds of Canned Beef with Gravy Products from the American marketplace due to suspected Lead contamination. The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 31812” on the can. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

The recall was initiated during routine surveillance sampling conducted by a state partner. In-plant verification activities conducted by Crider Foods in conjunction with the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) found that a spice mix used from an outside source contained unsafe levels of Lead. As a direct result of this suspected defect, you should neither serve nor consume the recalled Beef with Gravy Products identified above.

==> For information about Lead contamination, please consult the “Illnesses” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

==> 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.

Proposed Remedy:
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Beef with Gravy Products, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat Lead poisoning.
