Diced Beef Recalled after Broken Conveyor

16 January 2012

US - RSW Distributors based in Forest City, North Carolina, is recalling approximately 3,104 pounds of seasoned diced beef products that may contain foreign materials.

The products subject to recall were produced on 9 December 2011 and shipped to institutions for further distribution to schools in South Carolina, Tennessee and Washington as part of the USDA's National School Lunch Program.

The problem occurred as a result of a conveyor belt being damaged during production.

The US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said that the products produced may have contained small pieces of the belt and that those products were detained according to FSIS instructions but had been inadvertently shipped onto the market later.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of consumer complaints or reports of injury or illness at this time.
