Per the FSIS, Hi-Country Snack Foods, a Lincoln, Mont., firm, is voluntarily recalling approximately 219 pounds of beef products due to potential contamination with microbiological pathogens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.
While the product label advises consumers to “refrigerate after opening,” this product must be refrigerated at all times to prevent the growth of pathogens that could potentially cause illness.
The following products are subject to recall:
12-ounce packages of “Hi-Country, JALAPENO BEEF LOG, REFRIGERATE AFTER OPENING.” The package bears the establishment number “Est. 1248” inside the USDA seal of inspection and the use by/sell by date “11-7-06.”
The jalapeno beef logs were produced on November 7, 2005, and sold at a retail establishment in Lincoln, Mont.
The problem was discovered through routine FSIS inspection activities. FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of this product.
