National Beef Packaging Company, a Liberal, Kansas firm is recalling the 50,100 pounds of beef.
Recalled beef products have the establishment number "EST. 208A" inside the USDA mark of inspection, according to FSIS.
These beef products were produced on July 18, 2013 and were shipped to retailers, wholesalers, and food service distributors nationwide, according to FSIS.
