KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV/AP) -
A Kansas City restaurant has been affected after a Missouri company recalled possibly tainted beef products.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture said in a release Wednesday that Jackson-based Fruitland American Meat is recalling about 4,012 pounds of beef because it could contain parts of the nervous system that can carry properties related to bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or mad cow disease.
The meat company advises that bone-in rib eye roasts were distributed to a restaurant in Kansas City, the USDA said.
The federal agency did not mention the name of the restaurant.
In a statement, Fruitland American Meat said the recall involved bone-in, grass-fed rib eyes and two quartered beef carcasses.
"Absolutely no products were recalled on a local level and there have been no adverse effects reported on any level nationwide," the statement said.
BSE is fatal to cows and can cause a fatal human brain disease in people who eat tainted beef.
The USDA says there's no indication that the slaughtered cattle showed signs of BSE, and the company said there was just "a remote risk of adverse health consequences from the use of the product."
The meat was also sent to a restaurant in New York, NY, and a Whole Foods distribution center in Connecticut which services its stores in New England, the USDA said.
The quartered carcasses were distributed to an FSIS-inspected establishment in Missouri for further processing and distribution, the USDA said.
All products would have been processed into smaller cuts with no identifying consumer packaging.
Jeff Herschberger of the Kansas City Health Department said the meat must have chlorine poured on it so that no one would pull it out from a trash bin and eat it.
The federal government, as of Thursday night, had not told Kansas City heath officials the names of affected establishments in the Kansas City area. It is believed that a restaurant in the Kansas City area got rib eyes that had been affected.
Once the information is provided, then the health department will make sure the establishments are aware and have destroyed the meat.
While there is no indication of a problem, officials want to be safe and not take any risks with public safety.
Fruitland said it has notified its customers to pull and destroy the beef.
The recalled products include: quartered beef carcasses stamped with the USDA mark of inspection and establishment number "EST. 2316," and 80-pound cases containing two cryovac packages of bone-in "Rain Crow Ranch Ribeye" bearing the establishment number "EST. 2316" inside the USDA mark of inspection with the following production dates: 9/5/13, 9/10/13, 9/11/13, 9/26/13, 10/2/13, 10/3/2013, 11/8/13, 11/22/13, 12/17/13, 12/26/13, 12/27/13,1/16/14, 1/17/14, 1/23/14, 1/31/14, 2/13/14, 2/14/14, 2/21/14, 2/28/14, 3/8/14, 3/20/14, 4/4/14 or 4/25/14 printed on the box.
The products were produced between September 2013 and April 2014.
There have been no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the meat. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
"The problem occurred solely as a result of the way a company employee incorrectly recorded information concerning the age of various cattle," Fruitland American said in its statement.
