KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) --- A Missouri company has recalled possibly tainted beef products distributed to two restaurants and a grocery chain, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.
Jackson-based Fruitland American Meat is recalling about 4,012 pounds of beef because it could contain parts of the nervous system that can carry properties related to bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or mad cow disease, the USDA said in a release Wednesday.
BSE is fatal to cows and can cause a fatal human brain disease in people who eat tainted beef.
The USDA said there's no indication the slaughtered cattle showed signs of BSE.
