rehearsing: Stampede Meat Voluntary Recall

Stampede Meat Voluntary Recall

Tonight we had hamburgers. And then I read that the USDA announced today a recall of over three quarters of a million pounds of meat products from Stampede Meat. It’s a Class I recall due to suspected E. Coli contamination (health officials concluded the recalled product may be linked to five
E. coli O157:H7 illnesses in Minnesota, Kansas and Michigan). According to the FSIS recall notice:

The products subject to recall were produced between March 17 and March 22, 2003, and bear the establishment code “EST. 19113” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were distributed to restaurants, institutions and retail stores nationwide. The products were also distributed to consumers through door-to-door sales. Additionally, the products were distributed to institutions in Canada.

Stampede’s products appear under a whole bunch of brand names. The brands the recalled products were sold under include:






  • FARMERS PRIDE Meat Company












  • Country Side 3 State Cattle Co.




For detailed information about the specific products affected check out the recall notice. It has a 14 page word document detailing each affected product.

Julie Borek:

I am interested in having an address where I can contact Farmers Pride. A salesman came to our home and I want to contact someone regarding his "strange" behavior. Please respond as soon as possible. I wish I would have asked for a brochure, but I didn't. He claimed to be from Blaine, Minnesota and was driving a Farmer's Pride pickup truck.

We bought a half case of beef from a salesman at our door. The company was Butcher`s Choice of Toledo. Is this meat some that has been recalled, and is it safe to eat?

I purchased a case of beef on 1-14-04 for $140.00 containing a variety pack of steaks etc. According to the brochure this was about 1/2 price. Today (1-15-04) I recieved a phone call from a friend who bought the same thing. The meat was sold by two salesmen with Farmer's Pride. My friend did some checking and found out about the recall last year and we have no way to know if this case of beef is safe. There is no date information on the boxes and the number we were given no one answers when you call. Seems pretty fishy. I stopped payment on my check but would like more info. about the recall and any other info about products still being sold. Thanks.

Denise, i just bought a case of meat today(1-16-04) from a door to door saleman for $150. I looked up this company and found the recall information, because when i cooked the steaks there was a strange bubbling grease on the top of them. There is no expiration dates or numbers, and it looks like a upc code or something was cut off the boxes. i have no way of finding out if this meat is safe to eat, or how to contact the company. if you find out any information, please let me know.

I have been buying meats(steaks,Seafood,and chicken) off the back of a pick-up truck from a door to door salesman for 6 years now, and everything that I have purchased in the past 6 years has been very good and has saved my family a great deal of money in the meat department, however, BY LAW anyone selling anything door to door has to give you a 3 day grace period to change your mind, which means 3 business days from the day you purchase you are BY LAW entitled to a refund, always get a recipt on anything that you buy from a door to door salesman. As far as the questions about the cost of these meat packages, they usually run anywhere between $169 to $289, depending on if there is a sale. I was kind of skeptical at first about buying meat this way, but I know alot of people who do, and they are very happy to have the service and have been for years. If you want anymore info from me personally, you can E-Mail me at Thanks -Mrs. Jones-

We had bought meat from Farmers Pride last fall, and then we started to feel uncomfortable about our puchase -- we had read about the recalls, and after running the numbers on our purchase discovered it wasn't as good of a deal as it was sold to us as.
Anyway, we stopped payment on our check and informed the company of our desire to return the meat. A rep. from the company came within a few days and picked up the meat, we hadn't eaten any of it, and even still had the boxes.
Now, these few months later, we had a check refused at a retail store, and we have found out the reason is somehow tied to our purchase from Farmers Pride. We were told we need to contact Farmers Pride to get this taken care of, but we have discarded all of our contact info for the company. Would someone be able to provide me with a phone number for Farmers Pride? I would really appreicate it. Thanks in advance.
P.S.: My parents purchased some meat from Farmers Pride around the same time as we did, and they just love it.

Just purchased meat from Farmers Pride...and like so many I found out about the recall etc. after the fact. I don't know if this info is any good, but I got a brochure with a customer service number 1-763-433-9605. Also, an address: Farmers Pride 11990 Aberdeen St. Suite #4 Blaine, MN 55449
I'm not sure if I dare eat the meat or not. Hope this helps some of you.

Been in the business 15 years.Some of the companys sell good quality meat(top choice or higher,like Horizon meat co.) But most sell the lowest grade of choice & slam it with tenderizers or utility meat or even dairy cattle. To be very honest with you, its not a deal.I purchace wholesale and I dont get a deal.I pay $50.oo -88.oo a case for beef (6 boxes) and 40.00- 55.oo for chicken,pork or sea food.I could go to the store and get it cheaper.I do sell it cheap though ,80.00-100.00 a case.I really hate the business,there is alot of scummy,shadey,lying meatman outthere.Most of them drug addicts,excons,and so on.So if you ever buy,make sure you do on credit card so if your unhappy you can cancell cause they wont give you a refund after 3 bus.days.enjoy and know you got a little inside information. thank you meatman.

BEEN IN BUS 15 YEAR GUY,LOOK ABOVE THIS REPLY TO THATS ME TOO. I know most every company in the country. Heres some stories of meatman who suck.When they fill your freezer,they fill their boxes with your food.Double charge your credit card.Steal items out of your home(playstation games,jewlery,money,small item things) I wish I could post company names or their names but I dont feel like getting beat with a bat anytime soon.And believe me its happened to some people. Some have driven over your pets or have pushed elderly people over(THAT GUY HAD A NATION WIDE WARRENT OUT FOR HIM-HIS NAME WAS BRIAN HE WORKED FOR COUNTRY CHOICE MEAT CO.OUT OF PHOENIX)Till the next time. UNKNOWN
