Rancho Feeding Corp. recall expanded

FSIS has reissued the original recall notice related to Rancho Feeding Corp.’s recall of 8.7 million pounds of meat products. The release was issued on Feb. 8, 2014 and updated on February 14, 2014. When the recall release was first issued on February 8, FSIS was unable to ascertain the extent of the establishments involved.  As the establishments were notified, the list of States affected grew.  FSIS now believes that recalled product was shipped to distribution centers and retail establishments nationwide.  This update is a consequence of a properly working recall process. Retail establishments may issue their own recall statements to inform the public about products processed with meat associated with this recall.

The updated release states, “Rancho Feeding Corporation, a Petaluma, Calif. establishment, is recalling approximately 8,742,700 pounds, because it 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 U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.”

The products were produced Jan. 1, 2013 through Jan. 7, 2014 and shipped to distribution centers and retail establishments nationwide. A list of products is available on the original recall release. FSIS has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products.
