Missouri Firm Recalls Cattle Heads That Contain Prohibited Materials

Recall Release CLASS II RECALL FSIS-RC-021-2008 HEALTH RISK: LOW

Congressional and Public Affairs (202) 720-9113 Amanda Eamich

WASHINGTON, June 26, 2008 – Paradise Locker Meats, a Trimble, Mo.,
establishment, is voluntarily recalling approximately 120 pounds of fresh
cattle heads with tonsils not completely removed, which is not compliant
with regulations that require the removal of tonsils from cattle of all
ages, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection
Service announced today.

Tonsils are considered a specified risk material (SRM) and must be removed
from cattle of all ages in accordance with FSIS regulations. SRMs are
tissues that are known to contain the infective agent in cattle infected
with BSE, as well as materials that are closely associated with these
potentially infective tissues. Therefore, FSIS prohibits SRMs from use as
human food to minimize potential human exposure to the BSE agent.

The products subject to recall include: Boxes of “BEEF HEAD, PARADISE LOCKER
MEATS.” Each shipping package bears the establishment numbers “EST. 31865”
inside the USDA mark of inspection.

These products were sent to retail establishments and restaurants in the
Kansas City, Kansas, area.

The problem was discovered through routine FSIS inspection that verified
there had been incomplete removal of the tonsils by the recalling
establishment.

Media and consumers with questions about the recall should contact company
Production Supervisor Louis Fantasma at (816) 370-6328.

Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual
representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov. The toll-free USDA
Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in
English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time)
Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours
a day. #
