California meat and Uncle Ben's rice recalled

PETALUMA, Calif._A northern California company is recalling more than 8.7 million pounds of beef products because it processed diseased and unhealthy animals without a full federal inspection. 

That's just over a year's worth of meat products processed by the Rancho Feeding Corporation which has been under scrutiny by the USDA food safety and inspection service. The agency said that without full inspection, the recalled products are unfit for human consumption. The meat products were processed from January 1, 2013, through January 7, 2014, and shipped to distribution centers and retail stores in California, Florida, Illinois and Texas.

They include beef carcasses, oxtail, liver, cheeks, tripe, tongue and veal bones. Last month the company recalled more than 40 thousand pounds of meat products produced on January 8th that also didn't undergo a full inspection.    There have been no reports of illnesses however the meat product could cause serious, adverse health consequences.

In addition to the meat recall from Rancho Feeding Corporation, the FDA has issued a recall for Uncle Ben's products.

The Uncle Ben's recall comes after children in three states, including Texas, had skin reactions and other symptoms after eating their rice products. Uncle Ben's products sold in grocery stores have not been recalled however, but products served in schools, restaurants and other food service places have been recalled.

The FDA said that it found out last Friday that 34 students and four teachers in Katy, Texas, had experienced burning, itching rashes, headaches and nausea after eating the rice.
