In The News: Here We Go Again

ground-beef_350(1)Now, it’s ground beef’s time to be recalled (for, what, the billionth time?)!

This is starting to resemble a horrifically twisted version of Mad Libs: “(Name of company) is recalling (name of food) after (number) of people experienced (symptoms).”

Here’s what CNN is reporting:

“Cargill Meat Solutions Corp. has recalled about 8,500 pounds of ground beef that may be contaminated with E. coli.  The USDA says it believes certain BJ’s Wholesale Club stores in Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York and Virginia received the products.”

Alas, the truly disturbing tidbit is right here:

“The recalled ground beef was shipped June 11 to distribution centers, where it was repackaged into consumer-size packages and sold under different retail brand names. The USDA did not identify the brands.”

Our current food system is essentially a leaky ship with 80 holes.  Instead of drafting plans to build a new one, authorities think plugging two holes at a time is a feasible solution.
