Rancho Feeding Corporation Co-Owner Pleads Guilty

Robert Singleton, co-owner of Rancho Feeding Corporation, has pled guilty to charges of selling cows with eye cancer and is going to cooperate with the prosecution in the case against three other defendants. Rancho Feeding Corporation was shut down in February 2014 after a huge beef recall. Singleton admitted buying cows that were exhibiting disease, which makes them unfit for human consumption. Employees at the facility were allegedly told to cut off the heads of the sick cows and replace them with healthy cows to pass inspection. Employees are also accused of cutting federal inspector's "condemned" stamps on the carcasses so they could process the beef for shipping. Almost 9 million pounds of beef was recalled last winter, causing financial harm to many businesses. According to the … [Read more...]

Rancho Feeding Corporation Co-Owner, Employees Indicted

The co-owner of Ranch Feeding Corporation, Jesse J. Amaral Jr.  and two workers have been indicted on 11 felony counts after the huge beef recall last year. The charges include distribution of adulterated and misbranded meat, conspiracy, and mail fraud. The other co-owner of the company, Robert Singleton, is expected to be charged soon. Amaral pleaded not guilty last week and was released on bail. Government officials believe that the owners told employees to get around inspection procedures for cows that exhibited signs of cancer of the eye. Employees then allegedly substituted cows that were not inspected for those that had already passed inspection. This apparently took place from mid to late 2012, until January 10, 2014. The diseased cows were allegedly slaughtered and their … [Read more...]

Rancho Feeding Beef May Have Been Sold at Jack in the Box

According to a letter in the Press Democrat, the beef produced at Rancho Feeding Corporation that was recalled for adulteration may have been sold to Jack in the Box fast food restaurants and others and ended up in hamburgers. The meat-grinding company that supplied the food chains recalled the product. Officials believe that the beef has been consumed. The beef, which was originally recalled in February 2014, was considered adulterated because the government said the facility processed "diseased and unsound animals" without the benefit of federal inspection. Rancho Feeding Corporation has said the USDA report is unfounded, and has not commented on this recent report. The retail list for the recall lists almost 6,000 stores in 35 states. No restaurants are on that list, which … [Read more...]
