VERNON, Calif. (AP) -- A Southern California supplier is recalling approximately 7,875 pounds of ready-to-eat Angus Beef patties that may be contaminated with the Listeria bacterium.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall Tuesday.
The products affected are 22.5-pound cases of fully-cooked black Angus ground beef steak patties from United Food Group. The cases contain 75 individual patties and were sold to institutional customers only in California.
During a year-end inventory, the Vernon-based company discovered that the product was accidentally shipped when it was supposed to be held in a warehouse.
Federal officials and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with the product.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
