24,000 Pounds Of Raw Beef Have Been Recalled After Being Deemed “Unfit For Human Consumption” Samantha Holender
Summer is over and more than 24,000 pounds of raw beef products have been recalled. Happy day? I think not.
The American Beef Packers, a California based company, recently notified the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service that a carcass accidentally got thrown into the mix of raw beef products during packaging. As a result, the affected beef is not recommended for human consumption.
The tainted beef was packed on August 21 and recalled products are stamped with “EST. 34741” in the USDA signage on the packaging.The bad beef was primarily sent to California and Oregon, so if you reside in either of those states, you might want to reconsider that end-of-season BBQ. Save yourself and your guests from a less-than-stellar summer wrap-up and take the damaged goods back to the store or just toss them out. FYI, most of the products affected are of the ribeye, sirloin, and boneless beef variety.
Thankfully, we haven’t heard any reports of illness or hospitalization. But if you think you may have taken a bite of the recalled meat and are feeling a little woozy, please call your doctor for professional advice. Do a sweep of your freezer to make sure you didn’t stow away any recent meat purchases as well.
