KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) – A Missouri company is recalling beef products because of possible problems with its butchering.

The USDA said in a release Wednesday that Jackson-based Fruitland American Meat is recalling about 4,012 pounds of beef because the dorsal root ganglia may not have been completely removed.

The recalled products include: quartered beef carcasses stamped with the USDA mark of inspection and establishment number “EST. 2316,” and 80-lb. cases containing two cryovac packages of bone-in “Rain Crow Ranch Ribeye” bearing the establishment number “EST. 2316” inside the USDA mark of inspection with the following production dates: 9/5/13, 9/10/13, 9/11/13, 9/26/13, 10/2/13, 10/3/2013, 11/8/13, 11/22/13, 12/17/13, 12/26/13, 12/27/13,1/16/14, 1/17/14, 1/23/14, 1/31/14, 2/13/14, 2/14/14, 2/21/14, 2/28/14, 3/8/14, 3/20/14, 4/4/14 or 4/25/14 printed on the box.

The products were produced between September 2013 and April 2014.

    all this beef is past thesell by date anyway why isn’t even a problem it should have been destroyed and rendered the reporting of this is untimely ridiculous

    It would be so much easier on consumers if they would put the locations the meat was sold at in the report, I freeze meat, but I re-wrap it first.

    • not again!

      I just happened to recently buy a roast from Save a lot and can’t find a distributor labled on meat. Maybe I should just boycott buying beef from now on.

    I guess I am safe, I did not buy quartered beef carcass or 80 lb case of meat. I do have meat in the freezer, but nothing that would match the description in the story. I also usually buy meat from Dierbergs. I don’t know of a store called Fruitland.

  • not again!

    I’m starting to wonder if we need closer inspections of our food supply. The last recall had my husband so sick I was worried if his kiidneys were shutting down . He was very I’ll to the point of rushing him to the hospital. But he refused due to the fact he
    Couldn’t manage time to take off work due to his position. I’d never seen him so I’ll.
    It took him well over 2 weeks before he recovered. I’m getting to the point of not trusting our food inspections and my families health. I guess it will take someone on the White House staff to die before they decide to step up inspections. Last time I did my homework and found Gordon foods to be one of the distributors in Missouri of the last beef scare who distribute throughout St. Louis.This is getting scary for consumers reliability on our Government to protect us. Please step it up inspectors!
