The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has expanded the Public Health Alert for XL Foods (Canadian Establishment 038), sold at Kroger stores, to include all beef and beef products produced on August 24, 27, 28, 29 and September 5. FSIS was notified that XL Foods had expanded their recall to include all beef and beef products produced on the above dates. Because FSIS has been informed that all beef and beef products produced on the above dates have been recalled by XL Foods, the Agency made the public aware that these products are considered adulterated and should be returned to the place of purchase or destroyed.
Products subject to the recall include, but are not limited to, steaks, roasts, mechanically tenderized steaks and roasts, and ground beef. Previously, FSIS reported that approximately 890,000 pounds of boneless beef trim were received by U.S. firms from XL Foods, Inc. After conducting effectiveness checks, FSIS now estimates that approximately 1.1 million pounds of trim and approximately 1.4 million pounds of primal and sub-primal cuts used to produce steaks, roasts, mechanically tenderized steaks and roasts, and ground beef were received from U.S. firms. Information for consumers and the current retail distribution list are posted on FSIS’ website at www.fsis.gov/FSIS_Recalls/Open_Federal_Cases/index.asp.
