The Food and Inspection Safety Service.

A release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture alerted people to the likelihood of contaminated beef cropping up in California, Illinois and Texas from the Rancho Feeding Corporation, a company based in Petaluma, California.

According to the USDA, around 8.7 million pounds of beef have been recalled due to the high health risk the beef may pose to citizens. The USDA noted that the beef, sold between January 1, 2013 and January 7, 2014, may have come from diseased or unsound animals processed “without the benefit or full benefit of federal inspection.”

The release did state that the boxes containing the beef have the establishment number “EST. 527” inside of the USDA mark of inspection. In addition, each of the boxes have a case code number ending in “3” or “4.”

Though the amount of beef may seem staggering, the USDA did reassure people that there have been no reports of any illness caused by the contaminated beef. Should any illness arise, they are urged to seek medical help immediately.

For more information about this or other recalls, people can visit http://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/recalls-and-public-health-alerts. They can also call the Meat and Poultry Hotline at 888-674-6854 on Mondays through Fridays between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
