A beef recall has been issued over mad cow disease concerns in 4,000 pounds of beef products.
Fruitland American Meat in Jackson, Missouri processed the food which was meant to be distributed to a Whole Foods (WFM) distribution center in Connecticut. The center distributes beef to its New England stores, a restaurant in New York City and another one in Kansas City, Missouri.
“All of these animals received full inspection, both before and after slaughter by FSIS personnel and showed no abnormal signs or symptoms associated with BSE,” said an USDA Food and Safety Inspection Service spokesperson in regard to the beef recall.
The beef was produced and packaged between September 2013 and April 2014.
WFM stock is down 1.34% Friday afternoon.
