A northern California company has recalled more than 8.7 million pounds of beef products because it processed diseased and unhealthy animals without a full federal inspection. That’s just over a year’s worth of meat products processed by Rancho Feeding Corp., which has been under scrutiny by the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The agency said that without full inspection, the recalled products are unfit for human consumption.
The products were processed from Jan. 1, 2013, through Jan. 7, 2014, and shipped to distribution centers and retail stores in California, Florida, Illinois and Texas. They include beef carcasses, oxtail, liver, cheeks, tripe, tongue and veal bones. In January, the company recalled more than 40,000 pounds of meat products produced on Jan. 8 that also didn’t undergo a full inspection. The problems were discovered as part of an ongoing investigation, according to the FSIS. At press time, there have been no reports of illnesses.
