Toronto Import Firm Recalls Canned Corned Beef Because Of Incorrect Ingredient Label

WASHINGTON, Jan. 15, 2002 – Maple Leaf Foods International, a Toronto, Ontario, Canada, import firm, is voluntarily recalling approximately 75,000 pounds of imported Brazilian canned corned beef that is incorrectly labeled, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

The products subject to recall are 12 ounce cans of "Econo Corned Beef with juices, Product of Brazil." The bottom of each can is embossed with "BRASIL INSPECIONADO 3031 S.I.F." The product was produced between Aug. 8 and Aug. 23, 2001, and distributed to retail establishments in Puerto Rico.

The product may contain edible or inedible beef by-products that are not declared on the label.

"FSIS ensures that meat and poultry products are safe, wholesome, and accurately labeled," said Margaret Glavin, acting FSIS administrator. "Some of the ingredients found in this product are prohibited in the United States. We urge consumers to return the product to the point of purchase."

The problem was discovered during a routine FSIS re-inspection at import. Brazilian establishment #3031 has been audited by the Brazilian government. The establishment has been de-listed by the Brazilian government and can no longer export to the United States.

FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a physician.

Media and consumers with questions about the recall may contact Luis Rivas, Maple Leaf Foods sales manager, at (416) 480-6436.

Consumers with food safety questions can phone the toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at l-800-535-4555. The hotline can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday, and recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day.
