california meat recallRancho Feeding Corp., a California company, has recalled 8.7 million pounds of beef products because they are derived from “diseased and unsound animals” and failed to undergo proper federal inspections, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced in a statement.

Rancho Feeding Corp. of Petaluma, Calif., produced the products between January 1 and 7th and shipped most of it to distribution centers and stores in California, Florida, Illinois, and Texas, officials said Saturday.

“Thus, the products are adulterated, because they are unsound, unwholesome, or otherwise are unfit for human food and must be removed from commerce,” the USDA said in the release.

The agency listed 18 categories of beef products, including carcasses, oxtails, lips, and cheeks.

The agency has not received reports of illness due to consumption of these products, the statement says, but anyone concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.

The incident represents the second time in recent weeks that beef has undergone a recall. On Feb. 5th, Patterson Food Processors of Fort Worth, Texas, recalled an estimated 16,000 pounds of beef due to possible E. coli contamination.

“FSIS personnel became aware of the problem during a Food Safety Assessment when they discovered that beef trim tested presumptive positive for multiple non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) strains through the company’s testing program. The company inadvertently did not carry the test out to confirmation, and not all affected product was held,” the USDA said in a statement.

E. coli infection can cause complications, such as dehydration that is caused by diarrhea. Most people recover in 5 to 10 days, but anyone with concerns should contact a health care provider.
