At Least 6,300 Stores Affected by Expanding Rancho Beef Recall

The U.S. Department of Agriculture now believes that the approximately 8.7 million pounds of meat recalled by Petaluma, CA, processor Rancho Feeding Corporation and lacking a full federal inspection was shipped to distribution centers and retail establishments nationwide.

The Class 1 recall initially stated that the recalled products had been shipped to distribution centers and retail establishments in California, Florida, Illinois and Texas.

The current list of distributors published by the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) includes more than 6,300 retailers in 36 states and Guam.

FSIS reissued the recall release on Feb. 18, stating that the update is “a consequence of a properly working recall process.”

“When the recall release was first issued on February 8, FSIS was unable to ascertain the extent of the establishments involved,” the notice reads. “As the establishments were notified, the list of States affected grew.”
