Major Beef Recall Across the West

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture recalls nearly nine million pounds of beef products because the meat was not properly inspected. FOX Montana's Brittany Wright explains how this recall might affect consumers right here in Montana.

Nearly nine million pounds of meat were recalled after it was not inspected property by Rancho Feeding Corporation, a northern California-based company.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the establishment processed "diseased" and "unsound" animals, meaning the meat is unfit for human consumption.

A wide range of products are listed in the recall including packaged ground beef to Hot Pockets.
All the products were produced and shipped between January 1, 2013 and January 7, 2014.

Rosauers Store Manager Chris Hurlbut tells us, "We had to pull some Philly Cheesesteak Hot Pockets this morning. None of the meat department was recalled, we don't carry those."

Hurlbut says his store is informed immediately whenever there is a recall on any products.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is currently investigating the company.
