Consumer Alert: Recalled beef shipped to Oregon, Washington

Oregon and Washington are two of the states affected by a major beef recall.

Almost 9 million pounds of beef is being recalled after the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Rancho Feeding Corp. of Petaluma, Calif., processed diseased animals without being properly inspected.

“The products are adulterated, because they are unsound, unwholesome or otherwise are unfit for human food and must be removed from commerce,” FSIS said in a news release.

The FSIS says so far it has not received any reports of anyone getting sick.

The FSIS issued a list of the recall products, which can be found here.

Recalled product boxes are marked “EST. 527” inside the USDA inspection mark. Each box has a case code number ending in “3” or “4.”

FSIS says the recalled products were produced between Jan. 1, 2013 and Jan. 7, 2014 and shipped to distribution centers and retail stores in California, Florida, Illinois, Oregon, Texas and Washington.

The FSIS says anyone concerned about an illness should contact a doctor.
