A Missouri meat processor is recalling about 4,000 pounds of beef distributed to a grocery store chain and two restaurants — including one in Kansas City — because the meat could be tainted with mad cow disease.

Fruitland American Meat in Jackson, a southeastern city near Cape Girardeau, is recalling the beef, which was processed at the facility between September 2013 and April 2014, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Thursday.

The recalled meat was packaged in 40-pound cases of bone-in ribeye and quartered beef carcasses. It was then shipped from the southeast Missouri plant to a Whole Foods distribution center in Connecticut and to the two restaurants.Regulators said the improperly processed beef  represents a low level of health risk.
