What's This?

258,000 pounds of cooked of beef products have been recalled because of animal drug ivermection was detected in tests. Ivermectin is used to prevent worms in animals. According to wikipedia, “The main concern is neurotoxicity, which in most mammalian species may manifest as CNS depression, and consequent ataxia, as might be expected from potentiation of inhibitory GABA-ergic synapses. Dogs with defects in the P-glycoprotein gene can be severely poisoned by ivermectin.” Does not sound so good. Ivermectin is given to people that have scabies. I don’t think I want this in my system.

The following products are part of the recall:

  • 12-ounce cans of “Libby Corned Beef” bearing a production code “100315U,” “100316U,” “100322U,” or “100326U.” These products were sent to distribution centers in Florida, and Pennsylvania for retail sales.
  • 7-ounce pouches “Brushy Creek Shredded Beef” bearing a production code “100121,” “100128,” “100129,” “100308,”or “100322.” These products were sent to distribution centers in Missouri, New Jersey, and Ohio, for retail sales.
  • 10-ounce “Brushy Creek Roast Beef” bearing a production code “100226,” “100309,” or “100311.” These products were sent to distribution centers in California, Missouri, New Jersey, and Texas for retail sales.
  • 12-ounce cans of “Kroger Corned Beef” bearing a production code “100226U” These products were sent to distribution centers in Indiana for retail sales.

Each product package bears “BRASIL 337 S.I.F,” as well as “Product of Brazil” or “Packed under Brazilian Government Inspection.”
