beef recall USA
« on: February 09, 2014, 07:20:04 AM »
Recall of nearly 9 million pounds of meat not fully inspected      <blockquote>               February 9, 2014 -- Updated 0304 GMT (1104 HKT)

(CNN) -- Some 8.7 million pounds of meat from a Northern California company have been recalled because they came from "diseased and unsound" animals that weren't properly inspected, a federal agency announced Saturday.

The recall affecting Rancho Feeding Corporation products -- as detailed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service -- marks a significant expansion of one announced January 13, when just over 40,000 pounds of the company's products were recalled.

According to the U.S. agency, Rancho Feeding "processed diseased and unsound animals and carried out these activities without the benefit or full benefit of federal inspection."

"Thus, the products are adulterated, because they are unsound, unwholesome or otherwise are unfit for human food and must be removed from commerce," the FSIS reported. The Petaluma company made the recall.

The government agency noted there are no reported illnesses tied to these products, which went to distribution centers and retail establishments in California, Florida, Illinois and Texas. It was not immediately clear which companies got them, or whether they ended up being sold in some form at any markets or restaurants.

There was no answer Saturday night to a call from CNN to a phone number listed for Rancho Feeding Corporation.

A wide range of products are listed in the recall, including beef carcasses and various parts such as heads, cheeks, lips, livers, feet and tongues in boxes of 20 pounds and bigger. Forty-pound boxes of veal bones and 60-pound boxes of veal trim are included as well.

All of these were produced and shipped between January 1, 2013, through January 7, 2014. They all have "EST. 527" in the USDA mark of inspection and have a case code number ending in 3 or 4.

In the January announcement, the FSIS reported only that the products were being recalled only from January 8, 2014, and that they didn't have a "full federal inspection."

 Maybe the "diseased and unsound" part was because it contained some giraffe meat from that poor, young and healthy Danish giraffe that was "euthanized" (read murdered) because it was over the EU quota for giraffes.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Ok sorry to hijack the thread but I am really mad about that giraffe. Maybe they should have "euthanized" some of the EU bureaucrats who made the decision instead.

An example of when rules trump common sense. You see this more and more in our culture as well. It is much easier to enforce, requires no thought and can never be challenged on terms of bias or prejudice. "All are treated equally" under mindless beaurocratic rules. Plus it creates more jobs for management types and lawyers.
THERE ARE NO PROBLEMS... ONLY OPPORTUNITIES FOR SOLUTIONS

In the meat industry, if it can walk, or is still breathing, it is ok!

Or if they can "glue" it back together.  :o
