Massive ground beef recall

Posted on November 1, 2009 by


Today’s blog would normally have been about post Halloween Candy, however, the latest food recall involving ground beef has overshadowed the food safety and Halloween blog.

Approximately 545,699 pounds of fresh ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7. That’s unconcionable.

Ground beef in: Trader Joes, Shaw’s, Lancaster and Wild Harvest, Price Chopper, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Ford Brother’s, and Giant.

According to the website, the manufacturer of the alleged tainted ground beef, “Our current priorities are to inform the public and address their concerns. Further, we want to help them to identify and remove any of the recalled products that may be in their freezers,” said Ron Allen, CEO of Fairbank Farms”.

Instead of getting up early before your children to have that sugar rush from last night’s Halloween candy, open the freezer, check the ground beef. You’ll be glad your did.
