FSIS News Release: 226,400 pounds of spoiled meat recalled
January 10, 2011 – The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today that One Great Burger is recalling approximately 226,400 pounds of ground beef products that may have become spoiled. Specific products included in this recall:
- 20 lbs. boxes of “ONEGREAT HAMBURGERS” with “ITEM #02044” labeled on the front as well as “KEEP FROZEN.”
Each box bears establishment number “EST. 34575” within the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced between Jan. 2010 and May 2010 and contain “PACKED ON” dates ranging from July 2010 to Nov. 2010. The products were distributed to institutions in California and Oregon.
How was this problem discovered?
FSIS discovered the problem during an investigation into customer complaints of discoloration and off-odors in the products. The review uncovered evidence to show that the establishment repackaged and recoded returned products and sent them out for further distribution to institutional customers. Because of these findings, FSIS considered the products to be adulterated and has acted to remove the products from commerce.
