There are a couple of recalls going on that may have any impact on people who have stockpiles.

Roast beef with gravy

A lot of prepper stock up on canned meat while they are on sale. I just heard about a recall of a popular product: roast beef with gravy.

Crider Foods is recalling around 525,717 pounds of canned beef with gravy products that may be contaminated with unsafe levels of lead, due to a spice mix used from an outside supplier, according to an announcement by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The affected products were canned beef with gravy product items that were produced on October 22, 2020 and March 15, 2021 production dates.

  • 12-oz. cans of “Hargis House ROAST BEEF AND GRAVY” with best buy dates of 10/22/2022 and 3/15/2023.
  • 12-oz. cans of “Clover Valley FULLY COOKED ROAST BEEF WITH GRAVY” with best buy dates of 10/22/2022 and 3/15/2023.
  • 12-oz. cans of “Kroger ROAST BEEF WITH GRAVY” with best buy dates of 10/22/2022 and 3/15/2023.
  • 12-oz. cans of “Hostess ROAST BEEF WITH GRAVY” with best buy dates of 10/22/2022 and 3/15/2023.
  • 12-oz. cans of “Laura Lynn roast beef WITH GRAVY” with best buy dates of 10/22/2022 and 3/15/2023.
  • 12-oz. cans of “ARMOUR Roast Beef WITH GRAVY” with best buy dates of 10/22/2022 and 3/15/2023.
  • 12-oz. cans of “HARVEST CREEK Roast Beef with Gravy” with best buy dates of 10/22/2022 and 3/15/2023.

The products being recalled bear establishment number “EST. 31812” on the can. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.

So far, there have been no reported reactions to these products but FSIS is concerned that some product may be in sitting in consumers’ pantries. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

What happens if you ingest lead?

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), lead poisoning can happen if a person is exposed to very high levels of lead over a short period of time. Some of the effects may include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Constipated
  • Tired
  • Headachy
  • Irritable
  • Loss of appetite
  • Memory loss
  • Pain or tingling in the hands and/or feet
  • Weak

These symptoms may occur slowly. Lead can affect children more than adults:

Generally, lead affects children more than it does adults. Children tend to show signs of severe lead toxicity at lower levels than adults. Lead poisoning has occurred in children whose parent(s) accidentally brought home lead dust on their clothing.

Nestlé fruit and trail mix products

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Nestlé Professional, Solon, OH is recalling four Nature’s Heart 1.5 ounce fruit and trail mix products because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have an allergy to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. You can check the batch numbers in the FDA website here. Or, if you have any questions, contact Nestlé Professional Customer Service at 800-288-8682.

The recall was initiated after Nestlé Professional received two complaints from individuals with peanut allergies who ate the Nature’s Heart Superfoods Trail Mix and Mango Turmeric Cashew Glazed Mix and experienced mild reactions. No severe reactions or hospitalizations have been reported.

The recall only applies to the four Nature’s Heart products (listed above) sold in 1.5 oz packages. No other retail Nature’s Heart products are affected.
