WINDSOR, Colo. - Ninety-thousand pounds of meat and poultry produced in rodent-infested areas are being recalled by a Colorado-based company.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Monday that the products from Yauk's Specialty Meats, a Windsor-based company, were "produced under insanitary conditions."
Those conditions included "rodent activity in the production, storage and retail areas of the property," the FSIS wrote in a press release.
Each recalled package bears the establishment number "Est. 20309" or "P-20309" inside the USDA Mark of Inspection. The recalled items were produced between April 1, 2013, and Dec. 5, 2013. They all have four-digit Julian dates marked between 3091 and 3339.
The items were sold under these brand names:
- "Colorado Best Beef" brand various fresh, smoked and shelf-stable meat products
-"James Ranch" brand jerky and summer sausage
-"Rocky Plains Meats" brand hams, bacon, raw and smoked sausage, jerky and raw poultry
-"John Long Farms" brand fresh and smoked pork products
- "Horned Beef" brand jerky
-"Mile High Hungarian Sausage" brand fresh and smoked bacon and sausage
The products were sold at the wholesale and retail level in Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.
The FSIS investigation into Yauk's Specialty Meats is continuing, but so far there are no reports of illness related to these products.
Anyone with questions about the recall should contact Wayne Yauk at 970-686-9080.
