Minn. Company Recalls Beef Over Labeling Issue

ST. MICHAEL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota wholesaler is recalling more than a ton of beef sirloin products because the labels fail to indicate that one ingredient is milk, a possible allergen.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says J&B Group Inc. of St. Michael is recalling about 2,645 pounds of products. The products were made between January and September of last year, and were distributed for institutional use in Montana, North Dakota and Texas.

The USDA says there have been no reports of illness due to consumption of the products.

The products are 10.5-pound cases of “Ellison Meat Company Beef Sirloin Top Butt Steak, Cap Off, No Roll, Marinated,” and 10-pound cases of “Ellison Meat Company Beef Sirloin Top Butt Steak Cap Off.

Consumers can find more information on the USDA web site.

    Milk in a sirloin beef product? Huh?

    No one became sick eating any of this beef?? Why is the USDA forcing a company to recall beef over mislabeling?? To think that when the beef returns it will have to be thrown away. Many people go hungry at night and the Government is forcing a good Minnesota company to take a loss.

      The comapny iteself is recalling the product, theyre not being forced. If we look at the dates in question, wouldnt it be feasible to believe the meat has already been eaten??

      • kate

        Some people put meat in the freezer so it might not all have been eaten yet.

    • ez

      Because ,some people could die if they eat milk.

    • me

      And if you or someone in your family had an allergic reaction to the milk you would be irate at the government for not doing more. There is a good reason to recall. Allergies can be very serious. The company is doing the right thing by recalling.
