Chino, California-based American Beef Packers, Inc. is recalling approximately 24,428 pounds of raw beef products that are deemed unfit for human consumption. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service made the announcement. FSIS inspection personnel have retained carcasses and collected samples for further analysis.
Prior to test results being received, carcasses were erroneously released and further processed into raw intact and non-intact beef products, which were distributed for sale in California and Oregon. The recalled products included roasts, steaks, tenderloins and other products. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
