TEXAS FOOD RECALL: Ground Beef Chub due to Blue Particles Present

Class III Recall063-2014
Sep 30, 2014
 Congressional and Public Affairs

Alexandra Tarrant
(202) 720-9113

WASHINGTON, Sept. 30, 2014 – Sam Kane Beef Processors, LLC, a Corpus Christi, Texas establishment, is recalling approximately 2,633 pounds of ground beef chub product that may be contaminated with foreign materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The following product is subject to USDA recall:

  • 10 lb. chubs of “HEB Ground Beef 73% Fine 6/10”

The ground beef chubs were produced and packaged on Sept. 11, 2014. The product bears the establishment number “EST 337” on the package box. The product was sent to retail establishments in Texas for further processing.

The problem was discovered by the retail company. A store clerk noticed pieces of small blue plastic inside the packages and alerted the company to the problem. The company stated the likely source of the plastic is a rubber glove. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact Alfred Bausch, General Manager, at (361) 241-5000.

Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov or via smartphone atm.askkaren.gov. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day. The online Electronic Consumer Complaint Monitoring System can be accessed 24 hours a day at http://www.fsis.usda.gov/reportproblem.

USDA Recall Classifications
Class I This is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.
Class II This is a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product.
Class III This is a situation where the use of the product will not cause adverse health consequences.

USDA: Correction on Sequester Related Emails

Release No. 0042.13
Contact:
USDA Office of Communications (202) 720-4623
 
  Statement from USDA Spokesperson Correcting Inaccurate Reporting on Sequester Related Emails
 
  Washington, March 5, 2013 – USDA today released the following statement correcting inaccurate reporting on sequester related emails regarding the Animal Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS):

 “Several reports today have misrepresented a USDA effort to explain the impacts of budget cuts to an employee in USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). Here are the facts: Recently, a member of the APHIS field staff suggested to the agency’s budget officers that budget cuts in the APHIS Wildlife Services program could be spread out across 24 states in a particular region in order to avoid furloughs. The budget officers explained that the employee’s suggestion had already been communicated to Congress as part of the Administration’s FY2013 budget proposal and will be included as part of the sequestration plan. To be clear, the APHIS budget officer explained that USDA is already proposing these steps in order to avoid furloughs. USDA is committed to doing all we can to minimize the impact of sequester our employees and the farmers, ranchers, and rural communities we serve.”
