MF Meats is recalling approximately 93,277 pounds of raw meat products due to potential contamination with a non-food grade substance, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The products were shipped to restaurants in New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. There have... See More been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

The recalled products include various weights of meat cuts and ground meat (list attached below), The products display Julian dates of 330-365 (November 26 - December 31) and 1-47 (January 1 - February 16). The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 569” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The problem was discovered after the firm received four complaints from restaurants reporting a chemical taste in the meat products. An investigation revealed that the firm's mineral oil supplier had mistakenly sent a drum containing non-food grade mineral seal oil labeled as food grade mineral oil. This non-food grade mineral seal oil was applied to food contact surfaces, not directly to the meat products.

If you or a loved one are harmed or experiencing any symptoms, it is important to report it. Reporting can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and enable better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.
