Be Sure to Cook Those Burgers Well Over the Fourth

Over a half million pounds of beef have just been recalled. This time, the meat was from a plant in Nebraska. The key problem is the meat left the plant and was headed for further processing (and distribution) in Colorado, Michigan, New York, Illinois and Pennsylvania.

So far, 35 individuals have been sickened with E. coli O157:H7. These cases occurred in Michigan and Ohio.

I'm so glad we don't buy red meat, as this recall is directly affecting our state. But both of my kids had burgers at a restaurant today. UG.

do you ever watch 30 days? a few episodes ago was on animal rights, it was brilliant and this made me think of that too.
