No illnesses have been reported.

Most of the beef was produced between Jan 5 and Jan 12 of this year.

The beef was shipped to distribution centers, restaurants and hotels in California, so if you don’t buy your beef buy the pallet-load and you don’t live in CA, you’re probably okay. However, due to the limited information available, it’s unclear whether any of the patties made it into any customers’ gullets.
