Meat Recalls

Posted: Updated:

Undated--According to the U.S.D.A., most recalled meats are never recovered. This means there's a possibility that it's consumed before or even after the recall.

In 73 meat recalls this and last year, 44 percent was recovered, but in five recalls that came from people getting sick, an average of 20 percent came back.

Analysts say recovery rates vary by how quickly meat gets to market, and the time between production and the actual recall.
