700 pounds of beef and pork products recalled over possible human blood contamination


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – A meat producer is recalling nearly 712 pounds of fresh and frozen raw beef and pork products that may be contaminated with human blood, according to the USDA.

Birmingham, Alabama-based US Foods issued the recall July 20 after the facility learned an employee may have cut himself during production.

The affected meat items were produced by on July 18, 2019 and bear the establishment number “EST. 21103” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The meat was shipped to restaurants in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee, according to the news release.
