May 21st Ground Beef Recall

All over the country we are firing up the grills and enjoying burgers so it's only fitting the government announces a huge recall of ground beef. Unfortunately because of E Coli complications, small children, the elderly and people with suppressed immune systems can have serious heath risks and even death if they consume under-cooked contaminated meat.

You can kill off E. Coli by cooking but the government has issued a recall on meat from an Illinois plant that you can return if you find your brand and/or label is part of the recall. Here is a copy of the list from the government's website.

The products subject to recall include: [View Labels, PDF Only, 1.7mb]
