Colorado Firm Recalls Ground Beef Products Due To Mislabeling and Possible Adulteration
WASHINGTON, Jan. 14, 2011 - Recall Release CLASS II RECALL
FSIS-RC-005-2011Colorado Meat Packers, a Denver, Colo., establishment, is recalling approximately 2,234 pounds of beef trim that was improperly labeled and potentially adulterated, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product label includes "For Cooking Only," indicating that it is intended for further processing to apply a full lethality at a federally inspected establishment. Because the product was sent to a federal establishment that does not conduct lethality operations, the product must be removed from commerce.
