A California company is recalling almost 300,000 pounds of ready-to-eat canned corned beef. They were imported without a re-inspection once they arrived in the USA. They came into the USA June 6, 2020 to January 21, 2021 and are labeled with a few different "best before" dates. Just a few of the different styles are shown below.

They were shipped nationwide, but we don't know specific retailers yet. One thing they all have in common is they have “Australia Inspected” number “39.”

Seems like we get a new recall a couple times a week. I don't remember so many when I was a kid, so let's go back there for a bit. Scroll to find your favorite Fisher Price Toy from your childhood.
