(Washington, DC) -- Stores in Oregon and Washington are part of the recall of about eight-point-seven-million pounds of beef products sold by California-based Rancho Feeding Corporation. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Rancho Feeding processed "diseased and unsound animals and carried out these activities without the benefit or full benefit of federal inspection." The USDA says the products were shipped to distribution centers and retailers in Oregon, Washington, California, Florida, Illinois, and Texas. The USDA's Food Safety Inspection Service says it has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products.
