Beef Recall: FDA Extends Beef Recall to 35 States

It all started with the Rancho Feeding Corporation churning out bad beef items. And soon the influence of the meat, which was unfit for human consumption, spread to over 35 states of the US (including Guam). 

Many retailers purchased the meat from the original point of disease outspread. The list goes on and on and could include more agents with the passage of time. Way back in February of this year, the Rancho Feeding Corporation recalled 8.7 million pounds of meat products. 

This was done after 40,000 pounds of meat items were brought back in January. The problem was one of animals that had contracted various illnesses and were a health hazard for those who would eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. However, so far none of the products have caused any symptoms among the population. 

The USDA has termed it a Class I recall (beef recall ). What this means is that the contaminated meat may cause extremely dangerous reactions in human beings who consume it. There are even chances according to the USDA of mortality due to consumption of the flesh of these cattle. 

Among the list of recalled products there were crates of beef lips, mountain oysters, sweetbreads, veal bones and veal trim. Besides the Rancho Feeding Corporation, Nestle also recalled its Hot Pockets. Some of the meat from the former was utilized in the ingredients of the products made by the latter. 

Among the items recalled by Nestle are: Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese as well as Philly Steak and Cheese. It seems that when such epidemics spread there is a need for quarantine. Something similar is being done in case of these beef products. They are being repurchased and will possibly get incinerated so as to ensure they don’t spread the germs they are laced with.
