King Meat Services Inc. is recalling more than 50,000 pounds of beef products, according to an announcement posted by the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS).
Last December 5, FSIS conducted a routine inspection in a King Meat Services Inc establishment. The inspectors concluded that KMS employees were tampering the inspection marks of their beef suppliers and replacing them with the company’s own inspection stickers. The items included in the recall were packed between November 1 to December 5, 2016 and labeled with “Est. 426” inspection marks. These were sold to distributors, food services, and retailers, USDA says.
The notice posted on the USDA website Monday evening is categorized as a Class III recall. This means that the products subject to the recall have no risks to consumers’ health. Nevertheless, this underhanded practice should not be tolerated.
