Recall hits packaged food giants
From Bloomberg News
February 28, 2008
General Mills Inc. and Nestle, two of the world's largest food makers, have asked supermarkets to remove some of their products affected by the biggest U.S. meat recall.
General Mills said it recalled 35,000 cases of Progresso Italian Wedding soup containing beef that a supplier got from the Westland/Hallmark Meat Packing Co. in Chino. Nestle Prepared Foods Co. recalled 49,264 cases of Hot Pocket sandwiches with beef a vendor obtained from the slaughterhouse.
Food makers responded to a Feb. 22 letter from Westland/Hallmark issuing a voluntary recall of more than 143 million pounds of raw and frozen beef produced from Feb. 1, 2006, through Feb. 15. Federal investigations determined the beef unfit for people to eat because of improper inspection.
Video footage released in January by the Humane Society of the United States showed cows that couldn't walk being pushed by a forklift and dragged by a chain.
Slaughtering so-called downer cows for human consumption violates federal regulations. The hobbled cows should have been examined more thoroughly after slaughter to determine whether they were fit to eat, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said Feb. 17. It called the risk of human illness from eating the beef "remote."
Worlds Largest Beef Reccall
TRENTON — The New Jersey Department of Agriculture is working to support the USDA’s efforts in the recall of beef products by Hallmark/Westland Meat Packing Co., of Chino, California.
The USDA has deemed this a “Class Two” recall, meaning the products in question have only a remote possibility of causing adverse health effects. Nationwide, more than 143 million pounds of meat are being recalled.
USDA placed an administrative hold on Hallmark/Westland beef on Jan. 30 based on notification of possible violations of USDA regulations.
On Feb. 17, USDA determined that the products destined for federal food assistance programs, including the National School Lunch Program, should be removed from schools and other holding facilities and destroyed.
The NJDA notified the processors who distributed the finished products that they must inform the schools that received the meat of the hold and subsequent recall.
“The department is working with schools that received the recalled meat to identify how much product remains in inventory and to ensure that product is disposed of properly,” said New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Charles Kuperus. “As a result of the administrative hold, the department proactively contacted all schools in the state in early February, advising them to not use the products in question until further notice. In this way, the department reached beyond our notification requirements to inform the schools of the necessary steps for disposal in an effort to keep children safe.”
To date, the NJDA is aware of three meat processors — Pierre Foods of Ohio; Maid-Rite Steak Company of Pennsylvania; and Silver Springs Farm of Pennsylvania — which received 168,000 pounds of coarse ground beef ordered by the department from USDA between February 2006 and February 2008.
Schools received finished product through the National School Lunch Program, including but not limited to: taco meat, cooked beef patties, frozen steaks, meatballs and beef barbecue nuggets.
The New Jersey Department of Agriculture advised all schools in the state of the administrative “hold” earlier this month and has compiled a list of schools that actually received the meat.
This information was provided by the three known processors to date. There may be additional processors and schools identified and the list will be updated on the NJDA’s Web site www.nj.gov/agriculture.
The department contacted all schools thus far identified about the recall last week and worked with the state’s department of education to inform those schools of the steps they must take to dispose of the recalled meat.
Schools were required to provide the NJDA with an inventory form, detailing which products they received and the number of cases remaining in inventory by Feb. 26.
The USDA has directed schools with 50 cases or less of recalled product to immediately destroy the meat on-site.
Those with more than 50 cases were directed to take the product to a landfill or incinerator for disposal. The destruction of the products must be witnessed by a person of authority or a local health department official. Verification of destruction must be submitted to the NJDA no later than March 12.
This recall concerns USDA commodities containing Hallmark/Westland beef, however, the recall also affects the company’s commercial product.
