The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced that Readfield Meats, Inc., doing business as Ruffino Meats & Food Service, an establishment in Bryan, Texas, is recalling approximately 45,985 pounds of beef trimming products due to possible adulteration.

The FSIS has designated this a Class II Recall of Low Health Risk.

The USDA said there have been no reports of adverse reactions due to eating these products. Anyone concerned about illness or injury should consult a healthcare professional.

The US government urges consumers who bought the recalled products not to consume them; instead, the products should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase.
