The beef tallow was used in the production of the powdered beef flavor which was then shipped to locations in Ohio and Texas for further processing.
The problem was discovered during FSIS routine monitoring of imported shipments using Public Health Information System data by Recall Management and Technical Analysis Staff. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
