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 following products are subject to recall:
- 50-lb. boxes containing “BEEF TRIMMINGS FOR COOKING ONLY.”
The USDA said the recalled frozen raw beef trimmings items bear establishment number “EST. 13126” inside the USDA mark of inspection and were produced from May 26, 2015 through May 26, 2017.
"The product labels include “For Cooking Only,” indicating that they are intended for further processing to apply a full lethality at a federally inspected establishment. Because the products were distributed to non-federally inspected establishments where it cannot be verified that sufficient further processing occurred to remove foodborne pathogens that could have been present, these products must be removed from commerce." the USDA said.
According to the USDA, the FSIS discovered the problem when an FSIS compliance officer found cases of raw beef trimmings labeled “For Cooking Only” at a retail location.
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.
Consumers with questions about the recall may contact Terry Wiese, plant manager, at (979) 776-5685.
