Tons of Meat and Poultry Products Recalled for Water Contamination

Correctional industries Airway Heights Food Operations of Washington is recalling about 319,000 pounds of frozen meat and poultry products because the water used in their manufacturer is contaminated. The products were made using water that contained chemical levels above what is considered safe to drink.

Some of the recalled products include Lasagna with Green Beans, Orange Sauce with Chicken, rice, and Vegetables, Salisbury steak with Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Vegetables, Halal Beef Gravy with Rice Blend and Vegetables, and Halal Meat Sauce with Spaghetti and Corn, among others. The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 40238” or “EST. P-40238” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to institutions in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

The city of Airway Heights told the establishment that the May 8, 2017 sampling of several wells demonstrated chemical contamination. The water contains elevated levels of fluorinated organic chemicals, Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), above the Environmental Protection Agency Lifetime Health Advisory (HA) levels. No reports of illness have been received to date.
