Washington Beef, a Toppenish, Washington firm, recalled over 82,000 pounds of beef products on Friday. The recall was initiated after the Washington State Department of Health determined that the products were likely produced using non-potable water. According to a recall release by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service:
The beef products subject to recall were shipped in bulk for further processing and may have been sold under different retail brand names in the affected states. Consumers should check with their local retailer to determine whether they may have purchased any of the products subject to recall.
