California Beef and Veal Recall Expanded to 4.9 Million Pounds


Washington, DC: Huntington Meat Packing Inc, a Montebello, CA, establishment, is expanding its recall of January 18 to include approximately 4.9 million additional pounds of beef and veal products that were not produced in accordance with the company's food safety plan.

The products are adulterated because the company made the products under insanitary conditions failing to take the steps it had determined were necessary to produce safe products, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products. The following beef and veal products, produced by the plant from January 22, 2009, to January 4, 2010, are subject to recall:

10 lb. boxes of "IMPERIAL MEAT CO. GROUND BEEF PATTY"
10 lb. boxes of "El Rancho MEAT & PROVISION ALL BEEF PATTIES"
20 lb. boxes of "IMPERIAL MEAT CO. GROUND BEEF PATTY"
50 lb. boxes of "HUNTINGTON MEATS GROUND BEEF"
50 lb. boxes of " HUNTINGTON MEAT PKG. INC. BEEF GROUND FOR FURTHER PROCESSING"
50 lb. boxes of "BEEF BURRITO FILLING MIX"
50 lb. boxes of "HUNTINGTON MEAT PKG. INC. DICED BEEF"
50 lb. boxes of "HUNTINGTON MEAT PKG. INC. SLICED BEEF"
10 lb. boxes of "Huntington Meat VEAL PATTY"
10 lb. boxes of "Imperial Meat VEAL PATTY"
10 lb. boxes of "El Rancho VEAL PATTY"
20 lb. boxes of "Huntington Meat VEAL PATTY"
20 lb. boxes of "Imperial Meat VEAL PATTY"
20 lb. boxes of "El Rancho VEAL PATTY"

Each box bears the establishment number "EST. 17967" inside the USDA mark of inspection on a label. The products were produced between January 22, 2009, and January 4, 2010, and were shipped to distribution centers, restaurants, and hotels within the State of California.

This recall release is being reissued to expand the January 18 recall to include approximately 4.9 million additional pounds of beef and veal products, and to correct net weights from 40 lbs. to 50 lbs. in five instances in the earlier release.
