Massive Beef Recall

FOX 17 News

10:11 PM EDT, May 14, 2010

CHICAGO, IL

Beef products that may contain the animal drug Ivermectin are being recalled by a Chicago, IL company. Sampco, Inc. is recalling approximately 87,000 pounds of beef.

The recall includes 12 oz. cans of "Libby's CORNED BEEF" that were distributed to retail locations across the country. They bear production codes "100222 U," "100219 U," or "100224 U." Also, 35 lb. boxes of "Seasoned Cooked Beef" are being recalled. Those were distributed for further processing.

Each product package is marked "BRASIL 337 S.I.F" on top or on the side, as well as "Product of Brazil" or "Packed under Brazilian Government Inspection."

The Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a media release:

The problem was discovered through FSIS routine sampling. Since March 15, 2010, samples from cooked beef products imported from Brazil establishment SIF 337 have resulted in twelve instances of the level of Ivermectin found in the product exceeding the tolerance level established by the Department of Health and Human Service's Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of 10 parts per billion in beef muscle. The production lots that produced violative results were refused entry into the U.S. and are not available in commerce. However, it was discovered associated products with similar source materials entered the country separately. These are the products that were released into commerce and therefore subject to the recall. The Brazilian firm SIF 337 has been delisted and beef products from that establishment are not permitted entry to the U.S.

FSIS is taking additional actions regarding other lots of cooked beef products from Brazil establishment SIF 337 and other manufacturers of cooked beef products from Brazil. The Agency plans to sample at Point of Entry cooked beef product from other manufacturers of like product from Brazil to ensure the problem is only associated with product from SIF 337.
