A meat recall has been expanded by a Colorado meat processing plant to due to unsanitary conditions. In a UPI report published on Dec. 18, it was learned that Yauk's Specialty Meats in Windsor is recalling about 90,000 pounds of beef and poultry processed under unsanitary conditions involving rodent activity in production, storage, and retail departments of the processing plant.

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service launched a safety assessment at the plant in Colorado on Dec. 5 when they discovered the conditions violated mandatory regulations standards.

All products in the meat recall were produced between April 1, 2013, and Dec. 5, 2013 and sold at wholesale and retail-level in the states of Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. They are marked by Julian dates starting with 3091 and going to 3099. The report states that the latest batch in the recall can be identified as "Est. 20309" inside the USDA Mark of Inspection. The products are: Colorado Best Beef” -- various fresh, smoked and shelf-stable meat products; “James Ranch” -- jerky and summer sausage; “Rocky Plains Meats” -- hams, bacon, raw and smoked sausage, jerky and raw poultry; “John Long Farms” -- fresh and smoked pork products; “Horned Beef” -- jerky; “Mile High Hungarian Sausage” -- fresh and smoked bacon and sausage.

Yauk's plant has been shut down since the meat recall expanded. They had a previous recall of several products as well that included "Est. 20309" or "P-20309."
