A slaughterhouse in Petaluma has voluntarily shutdown due to a growing recall of beef linked to the facility.

That recall began nearly a month ago at Rancho Feeding. It started with meat processed on single day. The recall expanded on Saturday to include more than eight million pounds of beef processed in 2013.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports the company is trying to come up with a list of companies affected by the recall.

Eighteen products in all are being recalled. They include beef carcasses, oxtail, liver, cheeks, tripe, tongue and veal bones.

The products were processed from Jan. 1, 2013, through Jan. 7, 2014, and shipped to distribution centers and retail stores in California, Florida, Illinois and Texas.

The boxes of product are marked "EST. 527" inside the USDA mark of inspection. Each box bears the case code number ending in "3" or "4." The products were produced Jan. 1, 2013 through Jan. 7, 2014 and shipped to distribution centers and retail establishments in California, Florida, Illinois and Texas.
