California beef recall may have reached 35 states

Any type of product recall, regardless of the industry, should be taken seriously. This is definitely the case with a food defect, as this can quickly spread throughout the country, leading to illness or even death.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, beef recalled earlier in the year from a California producer may have reached as many as 35 states as well as Guam.

Since the February recall, thousands of retailers have been put on a list of companies that may have received the defective product from Rancho Feeding Corp. The USDA plans on updating the list to ensure that any affected products can be taken off of the shelves immediately.

In February, Rancho Feeding Corp made the headlines for all the wrong reasons, after recalling 8.7 million pounds of meat.

At this point, the USDA has not received word of any illness caused by the meat. That being said, this is a Class I recall, which means there is a chance that the use of the product could cause serious health concerns or death.

After the recall was made official by Rancho Feeding Corp, Nestle USA got in on the action, recalling some of its Hot Pockets products.

This type of defective product has the ability to impact people from one side of the country to the next. There is a chance that these products reached as many as 35 states, meaning that millions could have been impacted.

In the event of an injury due to a defective product, contacting a personal injury attorney is within the rights of the injured.
