Ground beef sold in Florida recalled
More than 38,400 pounds of ground beef is being recalled because it was “not presented for import reinspection into the United States.”
The Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said July 30 that JBS Food Canada ULC is recalling “raw, frozen, boneless beef head meat items” that were imported on July 13 and “further processed by another company into ground beef products.”
The recalled meat came in 80-pound boxes with eight 10-pound chubs of “Balter Meat Company 73/27 ground beef” with “Use by/Freeze by” dates of Aug. 9 or Aug. 10 and pack dates of “072020, 072120 or 072220.”
The lot codes of the affected meat are 2020A or 2030A and should have the establishment number “EST. 11126” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The meat was “shipped to distribution centers in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, for further distribution to retail locations,” according to the recall notice. The USDA has not specified which retailers sell the product.
The recall notice says there have been no confirmed reports of anyone becoming ill after consuming the products.
