The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service recently announced a recall of 300,000 pounds of corned beef.

According to the recall, an industry representative contacted the Food Safety and Inspection Service and let them know that the product in question was not properly re-inspected during import.

Because of this decision, MW Polar of Norwalk, CA has now recalled over 297,000 pounds of ready-to-eat corned beef. According to the announcement, the corned beef products in question were imported and distributed between the dates of June 6, 2020, to Jan. 21, 2021. The FSIS has a full chart of the codes if you would like to learn more about the current situation.


Thankfully, there haven’t been any reported adverse reactions to the recalled corned beef up to this point. Anyone who experienced negative symptoms after consuming the corned beef should contact their healthcare provider as soon as possible. The FSIS has reason to believe that much of the corned beef has already been purchased by consumers, especially with St. Patrick’s Day coming up.

If you think you’ve purchased one of the recalled products, it’s advised to throw it away. You can also return the items to their place of purchase and allow these locations to dispose of them.
