Petaluma-based Rancho Feeding Corporation issued a recall on Saturday of approximately 8,742,700 pounds of meat that didn't receive a full federal inspection according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service reported that the recall was issued because Rancho Feeding Corp. processed diseased and unsound animals and carried out these activities without a full federal inspection. The USDA considers these products to be unfit for human consumption.
The following Rancho Feeding Corporation products are subject to recall:
