Massive 8.7 MILLION Pounds of Beef Were Just Recalled

A massive 8.7 million pounds of beef have just been recalled. Government agencies are warning that eating the beef in question could result in sickness or death.

The meat originated from a Northern California company which used “diseased and unsound” animals that slide past “proper inspection” according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The recall was announced Saturday, and is said to affect all Rancho Feeding Corporation products. This disturbing news comes just after a similar recall announced January 13, when over 40,000 pounds of the same company’s products were recalled.

According to the FSIS, Rancho Feeding “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 USDA inspectors stated.

The recall announcement noted that while no one had been reported sick yet, there is a “reasonable probability” that consumption of this diseased beef could result in “serious, adverse health consequences or death.”

The Rancho Feeding Corporation doesn’t seem to be returning phone calls or emails for comment on this subject.

If you would like to know what products Rancho Feeding Corporation sells under, contact the plant’s Quality Control manager, Scott Parks, at (707) 762-6651.

      Good question. The best we can do is direct you to the number updated at the end of the article. Give them a call. Hopefully they can steer you away from them.
