Readfield Meats Recalls Beef Trim for Possible Adulteration

Readfield Mts, doing business as Ruffino Meats & Food Service of Byran, Texas is recalling about 45,985 ponds of beef trim for possible adulteration. The product labels include “For Cooking Only,” meaning that they are intended for more processing at a federally inspected facility. But they were distributed to non-federally inspected establishments. Inspectors can’t verify that enough processing occurred to remove foodborne pathogens.

The frozen raw beef trimmings were produced from May 25, 2016 through May 26, 2017. They are 50 pound boxes containing “BEEF TRIMMINGS FOR COOKING ONLY.” They have the establishment number “EST. 13126” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The items were shipped to retail markets, state inspected plants, and individuals located in Texas. The problem was discovered when an FSIS compliance officer found cases of raw beef trimmings labeled “For Cooking Only” at a retail location.

No confirmed reports of adverse reactions have been received. If you purchased this product, do not use it, even if you are going to cook it. Throw it away in a sealed container or take it back to the place of purchase for a refund.
