What You Need To Know About The Beef Deemed To Be 'Unsafe For Human Consumption'

It’s time to check your fridges and freezers after California based company American Beef Packers issued a recall on some of their products late Saturday. The company has recalled almost 25,000 pounds of raw beef products they have deemed “unfit for human consumption.”

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) states that 24,428 pounds of the raw beef have been recalled, causing concern amongst many consumers after the product was deemed unfit for human consumption. The company informed FSIS that a carcass that had been tested was actually released and processed before the company received laboratory tests.

Although the FSIS has received no reports of negative reactions from consuming the products, they are advising anyone who is concerned to contact their healthcare provider. The products affected by the recall have the establishment number “EST. 34741” inside the USDA mark of inspection and were shipped to federal establishments in California and Oregan, according to FSIS.

FSIS is worried that consumers may have purchased the recalled meat products and have frozen them, so they’re urging people to check their freezers and throw out any affected products, or return them to where they bought them, should they have any in their homes.
