SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) -

The national beef recall has been expanded to include 30 states.

Ground beef and case meat -- steaks, sausage, roasts, ribs, etc. -- are not affected by the recall and should be considered safe for consumption.

The types of beef/beef products recalled are: carcasses, blood, oxtail, cheeks, lips, tripas, mountain oysters, sweet breads, liver, tripe, tongue, veal cuts and veal bones.

Representative from Market Basket and Misse's Grocery contacted KPLC to say they do not sell the types of recalled beef.

The USDA in February announced that Rancho Feeding Corporation, a California-based company, was recalling almost 9 million pounds of beef because it "processed diseased and unsound animals and carried out these activities without the benefit or full benefit of federal inspection."

On Friday, the USDA updated the list of retailers who may have the recalled products and several Louisiana companies were on the list. The USDA said the list may not include all retail locations that received the recalled product or may include retail locations that did not actually receive the recalled product.

The USDA said it has not received reports of anyone becoming ill from eating the products.

According to the USDA the recalled beef was processed from Jan. 1, 2013 through Jan. 7, 2014 and shipped to distribution centers and retail establishments nationwide. Beef carcasses and boxes bear the establishment number "EST. 527" inside the USDA mark of inspection. Each box bears the case code number ending in "3" or "4."

The complete USDA list of retail locations is available HERE or at http://1.usa.gov/1hV1ncA.

    Debate on move to end non-unanimous juries in Louisiana

    Thursday, April 19 2018 10:49 PM EDT2018-04-20 02:49:12 GMT

    The future of how felony cases are handled could be in the hands of voters soon. The state Senate recently passed a bill that would end non-unanimous jury verdicts in felony cases. Currently, only Louisiana and Oregon allow people charged with felonies to be convicted when only 10 out of 12 jurors agree. However, the state of Oregon does require an unanimous vote from the jury in murder trials. Senate Bill 243 is sponsored by Sen. J.P. Morrell, D-New Orleans. Prosecutors, like Ca...
