Beef products processed without inspection recalled
The product subject to recall is 16-pound cases containing 4-pound bags of “Carne Asada Chopped Beef & Textured Wheat Protein In Red Hot Sauce.” Each bag bears the establishment number “21269” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced on April 19, 2011 and May 11, 2011, and shipped to a distributor and restaurants in California for further distribution.
The problem was discovered by the FSIS Alameda District Office, which determined that the company had produced the product outside of normal hours of operation when inspectors would have been present. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
