Nijiya Market in Torrance, CA, is recalling approximately 359 pounds of frozen boneless beef products produced in Japan that were not presented at the U.S. point of entry for inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Wednesday. Without the benefit of full inspection, FSIS says that a possibility of adverse health consequences exists. The following products are subject to recall:

  • Packages of various sizes containing cuts of Tender Loin, Chuck Roll, Ribeye, Strip Loin, Brisket, Chuck Short Ribs, Inside, Outside, Short Ribs, Top Sirloin Butt, Clod, Knuckle, Short Plate and Shank, all sold with a Nijiya Market label.

These items were produced in Japan on Aug. 6, 2014, and imported in September 2014.  The importer cut, repackaged and sold the products at a retail store in Torrance. The problem was discovered when FSIS import staff reviewed records and discovered that the importer did not present the products for USDA inspection at the U.S. point of entry, the recall notice states. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
