Listeria Worries Behind Lone Star Beef Brisket Co. Recall

Aug 25, 2009 | Parker Waichman LLP
Beef Brisket Recall

Lone Star Recall Some Smoked Beef Products

Listeria concerns have prompted Lone Star Brisket Company of Thorndale, Texas to issue a recall for some smoked beef products. The listeria  problem was discovered through U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) microbiological sampling program.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a physician.

Recalled Products

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the following product is subject to this recall:

  •  2 to 3 pound vacuum packed "Texas Star Meat Company SMOKED BEEF BRISKET Fully Cooked." Each label bears the establishment number "EST. 27340" inside the USDA mark of inspection and a day-glo sticker "Sliced" next to the product label.

Each 50-pound case, which can be identified by the case code "222A", contains approximately twenty (20) 2 to 3 pound briskets. The smoked beef brisket products were produced on Aug. 11, 2009 and distributed to Department of Defense Commissaries in New Mexico and Oklahoma.

Media and consumers with questions about the recall should contact company General Manager Chris Frazier at (512) 898-5423.

FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of the beef brisket included in this recall.
