One company’s animals were found not properly inspected or suitable for human consumption.
After an inspection of Rancho Feeding Corp. in northern California, the USDA Food Safety and Inspection services has alerted the public of a meat recall involving 8.7 million pounds.
Although there has been no report of public sickness, the USDA is urging anyone who bought meat that was processed from January 1, 2013 through January 7, 2014 in California, Illinois, Texas, or Florida to not eat the meat.
- Veal bones
- Beef carcasses
The northern California meat was under a watch due to not having full inspections properly done on the farm, which caused the company last month to pull back nearly 40,000 more pounds of meat because of not following inspection guidelines.
The most recent 8.7 million pound meat recall has been found not suitable for human consumption due to the inspection showing the animals were in very poor health and diseased.
