    The United States Department of Agriculture reported the recall from Chino, California, company American Beef Packers.

    The meat was distributed to California and Oregon.

    No illness had yet been reported.

    The USDA said a carcass had been released back into production, mixing with raw beef products, before test results had come through. The meat was packaged on Aug. 21, 2019. 

    While the recall names raw beef products, the USDA also warns that customers may have already frozen the meat after purchase. 

    Consumers should throw the American Beef Packers meat away, or return it to the store where it had been purchased. 

    The following products with "EST. 34741" inside the USDA mark of inspection are under recall.
