A beef recall in nine states affects frozen and raw meat that did not go through inspection.

Beef. It’s not what’s for dinner!

Due to a recent recall in nine states, if you were planning on having tacos or fajitas for dinner this week AND live in Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, or Wisconsin – check your fridge & freezer!

According to the USDA, over 7,100 pounds of fresh and frozen raw beef are being recalled because they were not inspected by the Food Safety and Inspection Service as part of USDA regulation.

The frozen and fresh beef items were produced on March 23rd – 24th, 2018 and include Beef Skirt Diced for Tacos, Pre-Seasoned Beef for Fajitas, and a few other beef items listed below.

Check your fridge or freezer for these items:
  • 5-lb. vacuum-packed frozen packages of “Beef Skirt Diced for Tacos,” with a case code of 1470 in the upper left-hand corner of the label and a packaging date of 03/24/18.
  • 5-lb. vacuum-packed frozen packages of “Pre-Seasoned Beef for Fajitas,” with a case code of 36989 in the upper left-hand corner of the label and a packaging date of 03/24/18 and a use-by date of 03/23/19.
  • Varying weights of vacuum-packed packages of fresh “USDA Choice Angus Beef, Fajita Seasoned Steak, Beef Flank Steak for Fajitas,” a packaging date of 03/23/18 and 03/24/18, a use or freeze-by date of 04/18/18, and an item code of 567248261 in the upper left corner.
  • Varying weights of vacuum-packed packages of fresh “USDA Choice Angus, Fajita Seasoned Strips, Beef Flank Strips for Fajitas,” a packaging date of 03/24/18, and a use or freeze-by date of 04/18/18, and an item code of 567248253 in the upper left corner of the case label.

While no illnesses have been reported at this time, it’s a good time to check the beef that you may have already stocked up in your freezer, especially if you live in any of the states mentioned above!

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 34715” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

    This part is too important to leave out! The only product affected is product coming from this establishment WITH the codes listed above.

    These recalls (the ones being recalled for product being produced without inspection) always seem to have Saturday production dates.

    ~~~FYI~~~ Smithfield Foods aka Cook’s, Eckrich, Gwaltney, John Morrell, Krakus, and others are no longer owned/operated by the USA Luter family. This is now owned by WH Group of China.

    Personally my family and I are trying to buy local as much as possible.

      That’s just what I was thinking!

    I love Hip2Save and you guys are usually on top of things but this recall came out on 3/31 if I’m looking at it correctly.

    Do I need to start raising chickens, buy a few cows, start a farm, and have a fish pond? This is getting really ridiculous.

  12. Judy Trac
