INDIANAPOLIS -- A Texas meat packer is recalling more than 7,000 pounds of raw beef - some of which was shipped to Indiana - because it was not inspected before it was sent out. 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service issued the recall for 7,146 pounds of raw beef that were produced, packaged and distributed without the benefit of a federal inspection.
