Ocho Rios in Miami recalls canned corned beef that was not presented for inspection.

WASHINGTON – Ocho Rios International, Miami, launched a recall of approximately 7,228 lbs. of canned corn beef products manufactured in Brazil because the products were not inspected, the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the US Department of Agriculture reported. The company, which is a specialty foods distributor, also has operations in Atlanta.

The affected products were imported Aug. 7 and include 18-lb. packages containing 24 12-oz. cans of “Corned Beef with Juices.” The products bear establishment number “Brasil 226 S.I.F.” inside the mark from Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture. FSIS said product cases contain the shipping mark “BT/7100366 MIAMI” and the can codes “16952U,” “16951U,” “15251U,” or “15252U.” The canned corned beef was shipped to retail locations in Florida and one distribution center in Georgia for further distribution.

FSIS discovered the problem during routine surveillance activities. No adverse reactions have been reported.
