    Default 22,737 lbs of Beef Recalled (E.coli)

    http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2013/06/18/...s/?hpt=hp_bn11

    The United States Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Tuesday that 22,737 pounds of ground beef products are being recalled on fears that they may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.

    The recall is categorized by the FSIS as "Class I": a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.

    Recalled cases of beef from National Beef Packing Co. in Liberal, Kansas, include 10 pound packages of “National Beef” 80/20 Coarse Ground Chuck, package code “0481,” 10 pound packages of “National Beef” 81/19 Coarse Ground Beef, package code “0421” and 10 pound packages of “National Beef” 80/20 Fine Ground Chuck, package code “0484.”

    The affected products have a use/sell date of June 14, 2013 and were produced on May 25, 2013. Cases were shipped to institutions and retail establishments and FSIS has expressed concern that some product may remain in consumers' freezers.

    No illnesses have been reported in association with the consumption of these products. The contamination was found as a result of routine inspection by FSIS.

    Consumers with questions about the recall should contact the company at 877-857-4143 for details. Additional information can be found at nationalbeef.com.

    Stuff like this is so scary! I mean it's not like you can tell it's bad by looking at or smelling the meat. That is such a huge recall on beef! Does E coli get killed when you cook it hot enough? I'm really not sure but this makes me want to find out! I know I don't want to die from eating contaminated food.
