Whole Foods: Beef from Supplier Not At Risk for Mad Cow
(WGGB) — New details regarding recalled beef intended for Whole Foods stores in Massachusetts and other New England states.
As we told you, a Missouri company is pulling more than 4,000 pounds of beef because it could carry parts of the nervous system that carry properties of Mad Cow Disease.
Tonight, Whole Foods says it has official documentation that the products intended for it’s stores were in fact not at risk.
However, Whole Foods says it’s going along with the recall anyway out of caution.
The USDA says the beef was produced between September 2013 and April 2014.
Products include quartered beef carcasses and 80 pound cases containing two packages of bone in “Rain Crown Ranch Ribeye” both marked with the establishment number “2316”.
Again, Whole Foods says that meat intended for its stores was not at risk.
