E.N.A. Meat Packing Inc. recalls frozen, raw beef and lamb products produced without benefit of inspection

NEW JERSEY – E.N.A. Meat Packing Inc., a Paterson, N.J. establishment, is recalling approximately 58,721 pounds of frozen, raw halal beef tripe, beef feet, and lamb tripe products that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The frozen, raw beef tripe, beef feet, and lamb tripe items were produced from January 2023 through August 2023.

The following products are subject to recall, regardless of the packed-on date:

  • Approximately 30-lb. cardboard boxes containing “E.N.A. MEAT PACKING CORP. HALAL BEEF TRIPE (green tripe).”
  • Approximately 25-lb. cardboard boxes containing “E.N.A. MEAT PACKING CORP. HALAL BEEF FEET.”
  • Approximately 30-lb. cardboard boxes containing “E.N.A. MEAT PACKING CORP. HALAL LAMB TRIPE.”

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “#17778M” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distributors and retail locations in New Jersey and New York. Consumers may see the cardboard boxes, or the product may have been taken out the boxes and placed in the meat display at the retailer.

The problem was discovered during FSIS surveillance activities. FSIS determined that the firm produced the beef and lamb products without the benefit of federal inspection.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness or injury should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

The FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at
