Happy New Year!

31 Dec

We hope everyone had a great Christmas and would like to wish everyone a very HAPPY and SAFE NEW YEAR! We would like to thank everyone for their continued support this year. If you are looking for delicious beef recipes we will be posting lots of good recipes from our recipe boxes.

 

Here is a fun fact about beef:

  • Cattle have four parts to their stomach and can detect smells up to six miles away!

 

Happy New Year and see you next year 😉

USDA Issues!!

18 Dec

            We would like the USDA to reissue a press release that would clarify the beef recall press release. Explanation of role of USDA inspected plants is to provide protection to both the public AND producer in the event of a non-compliance issue and providing a firewall that would allow for the highest level of scrutiny. And that the USDA had inspectors on site all the time processing was done.
            Additionally we would like an explanation/investigation why the USDA can have staff on site during the entire length of the recall (over 8 months). Had they done their job in the first place then the impact of any non-compliance would have been greatly reduced.

           The failure of the USDA to do its job has resulted in irreversible damage to our company. We have built this company and its excellent reputation for 22 years only to have a poorly crafted press release severely affect our ability to remain a viable business.

 

 

UPDATE

14 Dec

We are notifying all of our customers that Yauk’s Specialty Meats- our former processor – was shut down by the USDA, and a recall of some of our beef lot #’s 3091 through #3339 with establishment #20309/P20309 was affected.

The USDA said that product should be set aside to wait for the final results of the investigation. FYI there has been no illness associated with this recall.

Once we have the official results we will let you know whether to destroy the product or if it is deemed safe.

We have a new processor doing all of our processing – Innovative Foods. They are processing all of our beef and we have plenty of new, great products for your enjoyment.

We will keep you informed and updated as we know more.

Thank you for your support in this difficult and stressful time.

THANK YOU!

11 Dec

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to all of our loyal customers and restaurants who have expressed their desire to support us and continue to use our product. This has been very stressful to our company and having your support means the world to us!

We also would like to express our gratitude toward our new processor, Innovative Foods, for being so gracious to meet our needs at such short notice.

We will continue to keep you updated on any information we may have. Your safety is our number one concern!
