Meat Recall Expands to Indiana

Petaluma,Calif. (AP): A recall of meat produced by a California company is is expanding. It now includes Indiana.



The USDA now believes a beef recall is larger than first suspected. The Federal Agency thinks the tainted beef from a California-based meat producer may have reached over 30 states and Guam.



It was thought the contaminated product had been contained to just six states. Thousands of additional retailers, including large grocery chains, received the beef products from Rancho Feeding Corporation.



The company recalled more than eight million pounds of meat in mid-February. The problem? The beef may have come from diseased cattle.



The products were processed from Jan. 1, 2013, through Jan. 7, 2014, and shipped to distribution centers and retail stores in California, Florida, Illinois and Texas.



The recall expanded to Indiana in March, and the meat may have been sold throughout the state at stores like Food-4-Less, Jay-C, Kroger and ruler food stores



They include beef carcasses, oxtail, liver, cheeks, tripe, tongue and veal bones.
