A Wisconsin beef plant is recalling beef banned under Mad Cow disease rules that was shipped to wholesalers in a half–dozen states.
The more than 1800 pounds of beef came from a Canadian cow. After shipment, a Canadian audit determined the cow was too old to be allowed inside the U.S.
Green Bay Dressed Beef processed the cow on August 4, and distributed the meat to wholesalers in Pennsylvania, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
The Agriculture Department's Food and Safety Inspection Service says there is a "minimal chance" that there was any risk to the public.
