Now, product recalls are not generally humorous. As Ian Froeb at Riverfront Times rightly notes, they are usually about serious stuff like listeria, E. coli, salmonella - and that is just in the organic food section.
On-cor instead is, the USDA states, recalling 605 pounds of frozen boneless rib-shaped patties with barbecue sauce because they may have been mispackaged and labeled as Salisbury steak.

That's food identity theft right there. Froeb hits the homerun on this one:
On-Cor is recalling frozen Salisbury "steak" (actually made from chicken and pork as well as beef) because the packages accidentally include "ribs" (actually processed rib-shaped patties).Well, you can bet consumers noticed their unidentifiable meat was in the wrong shape. See? The marketplace fixed the problem, no pesky social authoritarians in California were needed to put arbitrary warning labels on everything and declare that meat parts shaped like steak may actually be meat parts shaped like ribs.
