Beef products recalled for mad cow disease risk

Over 4,000 lbs of raw beef products distributed in several states are being recalled due to possible mad cow disease contamination, CNN reported on June 13.

According to a spokesperson of USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, the cattle used in the recalled beef products that were processed at Fruitland American Meat did undergo the required inspection. The federal agency and the Missouri-based firm were both unaware of anyone affected by mad cow disease. However, the Class II recall was ordered because the beef products, sold from September 2013 until this April, lacked documents that certified that the cattle’s nerve tissues were extracted. People may die from ingesting beef products that are contaminated with mad cow disease, although the condition is rare.

Unexpectedly losing a loved one due to ingestion of defective food products is a terrible emotional loss, and often causes families to struggle financially as well. If you have experienced this in Columbia, the lawyers at Goings Law Firm, LLC, may possibly help you recover your much needed financial remunerations.
