Standard Meat Company Recalls Steaks Injected with Marinade for Salmonella

Standard Meat Company of Teas is recalling up to 53,154 pounds of raw beef products that may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. The products incorporated a seasoning ingredient called Au Jus Seasoning that tested positive for the pathogenic bacteria. No confirmed reports of illnesses have been received to date linked to this recall.

The recalled products are frozen, marinated top sirloin beef steaks that were produced on dates between February 19, 2018 and March 14, 2018. They include 20-pound boxes containing “USDA Select or Higher Beef 6 ounce Top Sirloin Steak Mechanically Tenderized” with case code 45966, and approximate 30-pound boxes containing “USDA Select or Higher Beef 8 ounce Top Sirloin Steak Mechanically Tenderized” with case code 45968. These products have the establishment number “EST. 33861” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to restaurant locations nationwide.

Standard Meat Company was notified of their supplier of the seasoning of a recall. The seasoning product is used in the marinade that is injected into the steaks. This tenderizing method can carry bacteria into the center of the meat. If those steaks are cooked less than well done, bacteria could survive.

Restaurants cook and prepare the meat for consumers, who may take the product home as leftovers. FSIS is concerned that some of this product could be in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers. If you have some of these products in your home, don’t consume them, even if you plan to reheat them. Throw them away in a sealed package or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Food safety experts recommend that people only eat steaks that have been heated to a temperature of 145°F. And test that temperature with a food thermometer before eating.
