Yauk's expands recall of products
WASHINGTON – Yauk's Specialty Meats expanded a Dec. 10 recall of meat and poultry products that were produced under insanitary conditions, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service reported. The company already has recalled 90,000 lbs. of products.
FSIS uncovered the problem after beginning a food-safety assessment at the plant on Dec. 5. Inspectors found product was being produced under insanitary conditions, including rodent activity in the production, storage and retail areas of the property.

The products were produced between April 1, 2013, and Dec. 5 and can be identified by four-digit Julian dates ranging between 3091 and 3339, FSIS said. The products were sold at wholesale and retail in Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.
