There goes St. Patty's Day: 149 tons of corned beef recalled


Well-known member
Milky Way International Trading Corp., doing business as MW Polar, a Norwalk, Calif., firm, is recalling about 297,715 pounds of ready-to-eat canned corned beef products that were imported and distributed in the United States without the benefit of FSIS import re-inspection, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said.

The canned corned beef items were imported on various dates between June 6, 2020 to Jan. 21, 2021. The product cans are labeled with various “Best Before” dates and the product cases are labeled with various shipping marks. A complete list of recalled products is available here.

The products subject to recall bear “Australia Inspected” number “39” and were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

The problem was discovered after FSIS received a tip from an industry representative indicating that corned beef product received from Milky Way did not undergo FSIS import reinspection. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

A recall on canned corned beef isn't going to put a damper on my St. Patrick's Day, Fred! :alc:

But thanks for the heads up!
