MN now included in beef recall
A beef recall prompted by the slaughter of what federal regulators are calling "diseased
and unsound" animals now includes Minnesota. The meat came from the Rancho Feeding Corporation slaughterhouse in California, which was closed last month. Fifty-five Minnesota retailers were added to the list of more than 5,000 stores which received beef from the slaughterhouse. Nearly nine-million pounds of beef products have been recalled.
The updated report from the USDA shows the products may have been sold by BP, Cenex, Kwik Trip, Quick Mart and SuperAmerica stores in Minnesota. Two Rochester convenience stores - the Greenway Co-op on 3rd avenue southeast and Fleet Farm's Gas Mart - are also on the revised list.
Here is the latest information from the USDA.
