WASHINGTON – North Springfield, Vermont-based Vermont Packinghouse LLC is recalling 10,828 lbs. of raw intact bone-in beef quarters from cattle identified as being over 30 months of age, according to a Dec. 13 announcement by the US Dept. of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The products may contain specified risk materials (SRM), specifically vertebral column.
The carcasses were slaughtered from Feb. 8, 2018, to June 8, 2018. The problem was discovered when FSIS was notified by the state of Vermont of a complaint received by the state, which led to an FSIS investigation.
White butcher paper wrapped packages of fresh T-bone and Porterhouse steaks from Walden Local Butcher Shop in Boston are subject to the recall. The quartered carcasses were shipped from Vermont Packinghouse LLC to the retail location for further processing and were wrapped in butcher paper for consumers.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions or injuries due to consumption of these products.
