There has been a meat recall due to contaminated beef products at Rancho Feeding Corporation. The recall will affect states such as California, Texas and Florida.
Almost 9 million pounds of meat has been recalled due to the fact that it was diseased. At least this is the way it was according to the USDA. The company which is responsible for this blunder is the Rancho Feeding Corporation and it is situated in California.
The meat products had not been fully inspected and it is suspected that they carry deadly germs. They are considered unfit for human consumption. It is a miracle that no one has contracted any illness due to the consumption of these products. Whatever the case, the products are being recalled from every supermarket or superstore they have made their way to.
The fact that these products may have ended up at a restaurant or in someone’s kitchen remains a moot point. They included: beef liver, oxtail, tongue, lips, cheek and feet. They were transported in 20 pound boxes. Veal bones and whole carcasses were shipped too. They were to be found in 60 pound boxes.
The transportation of these products took place during the first week of January. The alarming news that they had skimped on the inspection process has raised apprehension levels everywhere. Such massive mistakes in the food supply can have devastating consequences on consumer health.
The governmental agencies ought to be more careful in the future regarding checking meat products for signs of contamination and disease.
