7,000+ lbs of raw beef products recalled after being produced without inspection

MILWAUKEE -- A recall has been issued for approximately 7,146 pounds of raw beef after a Texas meat plant produced the products without inspecting them.

PFP Enterprises, LLC, also known as Texas Meat Packers -- located in Fort Worth, Texas -- is recalling beef products that were produced and packaged “without the benefit of federal inspection,” the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Saturday, March 31.

The frozen and fresh beef items were produced on March 23 and 24 of 2018.

The items were shipped to institutional and retail locations in Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas and Wisconsin.

The following products are subject to recall:

    The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 34715” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

    The problem was discovered on March 30, when inspection personnel reviewed establishment records and determined the establishment operated on March 24 without inspection.

    There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

    FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

    Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Shane Fresh, vice president of quality assurance for Patterson Foods, at (817) 546-3561.
