FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – A northern California company is recalling more than 8.7 million pounds of beef products that could be in Indiana.

Recalled are just over a year's worth of meat products processed by Rancho Feeding Corporation, which has been under scrutiny by the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service for processing diseased and unhealthy animals without a full federal inspection.

The products were processed from Jan. 1, 2013, through Jan. 7, 2014, and shipped to distribution centers and retail stores in California, Florida, Illinois and Texas.

The recall expanded to Indiana in March, and the meat may have been sold throughout the state at stores like Food-4-Less, Jay-C, Kroger and ruler food stores

They include beef carcasses, oxtail, liver, cheeks, tripe, tongue and veal bones.
