11 tonnes of beef recalled in the US

11 tonnes of raw beef products have been recalled in the US by American Beef Packers after one carcass that was pending laboratory results had been erroneously released and further processed into raw intact and non-intact beef products.
The alert was released by the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), who also retained the carcass and collected a sample for further analysis due to the fears that the meat may prove to be unfit for human consumption.
The raw beef items were produced and packaged on Aug. 21, 2019, and shipped to federal establishments in California and Oregon. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products so far.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and consumers’ refrigerators or freezers or both. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
