Maine Company Recalls 25,192 pounds of Beef

A Maine company is recalling more than 25,000 pounds of beef dating to last November for failure to remove tissues that could potentially allow transmission of mad cow disease.

State officials announced Friday that Bubier Meats of Greene is recalling fresh beef because the dorsal root ganglia may not have been completely removed. Federal regulations require removal of the tissue because it could contain bovine spongiform encephalopathy, which can cause fatal brain disease in humans who eat tainted beef.

Bubier Meats says carcasses were distributed to Rosemont Market locations in Portland and Yarmouth, and Maine Meat in Kittery, between November 2013 and August 2014. All products would have been processed into smaller cuts with no identifying consumer packaging.
