La Bodega Meat LLC, a Farmers Branch, based in Texas listed a dozen cuts of beef that are implicated in the recall, according to a notice posted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The company says the items were shipped to distributor locations in Arkansas, Missouri, and Texas for food service and retail sales.

“FSIS is concerned that some product may be in distributors’ retailers’ and consumers’ refrigerators or freezers. Distributors in possession of these products are urged not to further distribute them. Retailers who have obtained these products are urged not to sell them,” according to the recall notice.

“Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Consumers and members of the media with questions about the recall can contact Jose Torres, director at La Bodega Meat LLC, at 214-402-4966.
