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.

    DeQuincy Elementary students watch eclipse with special telescope

    While many people across the United States watched today's solar eclipse with special eclipse glasses, some students at DeQuincy Elementary had a different option.  Smiles were on many faces of the third graders at the school, who were able to view the solar eclipse through a special Dobsonian telescope. This was all thanks to a local amateur Astronomer, Blake Gaspard.  Gaspard heard the school was interested in safe activities for the eclipse so he off...

    We only saw around 70-percent coverage during the eclipse, but that didn't stop residents and students from getting hyped up about it. At Sam Houston High School, Sara Blankenship's Biology class shifted gears to learn about this major event, a total solar eclipse. The first time we've seen one across the US in a while and 9th grade students like Allison Hull and Ben Martin are excited. “I think it’s really cool because 99 years ago was the last total one which is what ...
