Pescadero company recalls beef
February 15, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A Pescadero-based producer of grass fed beef has issued a recall of all beef processed in 2013 following a federal investigation and recall of meat processed by a Petaluma meat processor and wholesaler.

Leftcoast GrassFed has issued a statement saying that while there have been no reported illnesses from their products, they are issuing the recall out of concern for the safety and health of their customers.

The company said in its statement that Rancho Feeding Corporation, the Petaluma slaughterhouse currently under scrutiny by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, processes many of its cattle, which are billed as sustainably raised, humane and entirely grass fed.

Rancho, located at 1522 Petaluma Blvd. N. in Petaluma, has recalled all beef products processed between Jan. 1, 2013 and Jan. 7, 2014-nearly 9 million pounds of meat-- after the USDA found that diseased and unsound animals had been slaughtered without a full federal inspection. The recall initially targeted only products produced on Jan. 8, but has since expanded.

The Class I Recall indicates a high health risk, and the un-inspected meat products make them unsafe for human food, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said.

Leftcoast said in its statement that it contracted with Rancho to process cattle on “a handful of days in the summer and fall of 2013.”

“We are sorry for this inconvenience and saddened by the waste of millions of pounds of meat, some of which, like ours, was raised with meticulous care and attention to the health and well-being of the animals that produced it,” the statement said.

The USDA has posted a list of more than 50 retail outlets in California and Florida thought to have received shipments of the affected meat, including dozens in the Bay Area. Beef carcasses and boxes bear the establishment number “EST. 527” inside the USDA mark of inspection, and each box bears the case code number ending in “3” or “4.”

No reports of illness have been received in connection with the recalled products, according to the USDA.
