Rancho Feeding Corp., 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 unfit for human food and must be removed from commerce, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Feb. 18.
The following Rancho Feeding Corp. products are subject to recall:
•Beef carcasses -- wholesale and custom sales
•2 per box beef (market) heads (retail only)
•4 gallons per box beef blood (wholesale only)
•20-lb. boxes of beef oxtail
•30-lb. boxes of beef cheeks, lips, omasum, and tripas, mountain oysters, and sweet breads
•30- and 60-lb. boxes of beef liver, tripe, and tongue, and veal cuts
•40-lb. boxes of veal bones
•50-lb. boxes of beef feet and hearts
•60-lb. boxes of veal trim.
The products were produced from Jan. 1, 2013, through Jan. 7, 2014, and shipped to distribution centers and retail establishments nationwide.
