They didn't bear the Agriculture Department's mark of inspection.

No illnesses have been reported.

Plant Manager David Hill says customers from Pennsylvania and New York picked up the quarter-cut carcasses to consume at home for Sunday's Greek Orthodox Easter.

Hill says none of the recalled meat wound up in stores. He says most of it has already been returned to the slaughterhouse.

Imler is about 28 miles south of Altoona.
