Illegal Chinese beef imports discovered in the US

B & C Food, a Californian firm, was asked to recall approximately 750 kilos of beef imported last year from China and shipped retail locations in California, Nevada, and Oklahoma. The products were imported from the People’s Republic of China, a country ineligible to export beef to the United States, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The problem was discovered when FSIS received an anonymous report of ineligible beef tallow products imported from China. The Chinese-style hot pot base products were imported on or around June 24, 2020. The following products are subject to recall:
(300 g) Plastic vacuum wrapped packages containing a “Lee’s 52° Da Zhuang” Hot Pot Base and a best before date of 10/12/2021 on the label;
(300 g) Plastic vacuum wrapped packages containing a “Lee’s 45° Da Zhuang” Hot Pot Base and a best before date of 10/12/2021 on the label;
(300 g) Plastic vacuum wrapped packages containing a “Lee’s 36° Da Zhuang” Hot Pot Base and a best before date of 10/12/2021 on the label.
The product labels are written in the Chinese language. The products do not bear an establishment number nor a USDA mark of inspection. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some products may be in consumers’ homes. 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.
