NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) - A southern Arizona meat distributor is recalling more than 50,000 pounds of pork and beef because they were mislabeled.

The USDA said Friday that Premiere Distribution Center in Nogales is recalling more than 22,000 pounds of frozen bulk pork and more than 28,000 beef products.

The agency says the meats are in boxes that have a photocopied version of labels with shipping number 1880 or 2014110262.

The products were shipped to locations in Arizona, California and Washington.

The pork items were produced between June 16 and Dec. 3 of last year. The beef products were made between Nov. 29 and Dec. 18.

An inspector first observed the labels were photocopied. An investigation shows they were mistakenly attached without an inspector present.

Officials say no adverse reactions have been reported.
