Winn Meats Recalls 25,600 Pounds of Ground Beef

Winn Meats Co of Dallas, TX, is recalling approximately 25,600 pounds of ground beef products that were improperly labeled and potentially adulterated, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Friday.

The products’ labels include “For Cooking Only,” indicating that they are intended for further processing to apply a full lethality at a federally inspected establishment.

But because the products were distributed to non-federally inspected establishments, whether sufficient processing occurred to remove potential pathogens cannot be verified, so the products must be removed from commerce, FSIS said.

Each 60-pound box of “Ground Beef for Cooking Only” bears the establishment number “EST. 2338” inside the USDA mark of inspection and can be identified by the case code “506093.” Boxes contain three 20-pound packages of ground beef.

The ground beef products were produced between Aug. 24, 2010 and Nov. 30, 2010. They were sent to a distribution center in Albuquerque, NM, which in turn sent the products to restaurants, central kitchens, and caterers throughout the state.
