Tucson Company Recalls 915 Pounds Of Tamales

A Tucson company is recalling around 915 pounds of beef tamales. The ready-to-eat products contain meat that was not federally inspected.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said the Tucson Tamale Wholesale Company is recalling tamales on various dates from Aug. 11 to Sept. 13. The recalled products are bulk boxes containing pairs of tamales, including two of red chile beef tamales, chipotle beef tamales and chipotle beef and cheese tamales.

Customers can look for the code M45860 inside the USDA mark of inspection. The USDA said the problem was discovered during routine inspection activities.

So far, authorities said, there have not been any confirmed reports of anyone getting sick from the tamales.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

When senior field correspondent Stina Sieg was 22, she moved to the desert. She hasn’t been the same since. At the time, the Northern California native had just graduated from college and was hankering for wide-open spaces. So she took a leap and wrote to nearly every newspaper in New Mexico until one offered her a job. That’s how she became the photographer for a daily paper in the small town of Silver City. And that’s when she realized how much she loved storytelling. In the years since, the beauty of having people open up and share their stories — and trust her to tell them — has never gotten old to Sieg. Before coming to KJZZ, Sieg was also a writer and photographer at newspapers in Glenwood Springs, Colorado; Moab, Utah; and the Smoky Mountains town of Waynesville, North Carolina. She always had her hand in public radio, too, including hosting Morning Edition on a fill-in basis at WNCW in North Carolina. It’s still the best music station she’s found. When she’s not reporting, chances are Sieg is running, baking, knitting or driving to some far-flung town deep in the desert — just to see what it looks like.
