The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Thursday that Greater Omaha Packing is recalling 295,236 pounds of raw beef products intended for non-intact use.
The raw beef products intended for non-intact use were produced on July 13. The complete list of products and product codes for the beef products that are subject to recall can be found here.
