Rancho Feeding Corporation has recalled 8.7 million pounds of meat after an investigation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) discovered that the meat came from diseased and unsound animals that were not fit for human consumption.
Processed from January 1, 2013 through January 7, 2014, over a year’s worth of meat products were issued in the recall because it was not properly inspected. The diseased meat was shipped to Florida, California, Illinois, and Texas distribution centers and sold to retailers. The recalled meat products have the USDA mark EST. 527 and have a code number ending in the number 3 or 4.
The FSIS has issued a Class I recall, the highest health risk recall warning label, because the meat can cause serious health consequences and even death. The FSIS has warned consumers to check freezers and storage for the bad meat. For a full list of recalled meat items, click here.
