A California establishment is recalling nearly 9 million pounds of beef across the United States.
The Rancho Feeding Corporation is recalling 8,742,700 pounds of beef, because it processed diseased and unsound animals and carried out these activities without the full benefit of federal inspection.
The original recall was issued in February, but today the USDA expanded the list to include stores in Oklahoma that may have received the contaminated products.
In the report, the USDA writes, “This list may not include all retail locations that have received the recalled product or may include retail locations that did not actually receive the recalled product.” It states the importance of reviewing the list of products included in the recall.
The USDA has classified this as a class 1 recall and lists 262 Oklahoma stores that may have received the product.
A class 1 recall is described as a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.
So far there have been no reports of illness due to the consumption of these products.
