The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that the agency has completed all the checks for the Rancho recalls and no further additions will be added to the distribution list.
The beef was sent to distribution centers to be manufactured into smaller cuts and products sent to establishments nationwide.
In February, nearly 9 million pounds of beef processed from Jan. 1, 2013 through Jan 7. 2014 at Rancho Feeding Corp. plant in Petaluma, Calif. was recalled. According to the notice, the plant processed diseased and unsound animals and carried out the activities without the full inspection from federal inspectors.
In the March 20 update, FSIS stated personnel were present at the Rancho Feeding plan during normal operation and the agency has not received any reports of illness from the consumption of these products.
Furthermore, the USDA’s Office of Inspector General is conducting an investigation into the activities of the facility and no further information has been released.
