"There are none so blind as those who will not see!"
The face of famine! Could it happen here?
People! Wake up! This IS coming here!
1M Pounds of Ground Beef Recalled Due to E. Coli
Friday, August 06, 2010
MODESTO, Calif. — "A California company is recalling about 1 million pounds of ground beef products after seven people were sickened by E. coli contamination.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Friday that Valley Meat Co., of Modesto, sold the potentially contaminated beef patties and ground beef in California, Texas, Oregon, Arizona and internationally.
The beef was processed between Oct. 2, 2009, and Jan. 12, 2010. The company says most of the products are sold frozen and that they're working to remove them from grocery store shelves.
Valley Meat says consumers should discard possibly affected meat or return it to stores for a full refund.
The California Department of Health notified the USDA of a cluster of E. coli-related illnesses in mid-July, leading to the recall."
It's ironic that this should come out of California. The same state as the infamous sausage house massacre where state health inspectors were gunned down by a meat market owner after they had harrassed the man and his family for years!
The production and processing of meat, dairy and processed food products has, because of government regulation, moved farther away from the consumer creating a greater reliance on our transportation system which is growing more fragile every day!
Small, family owned meat processing operations, ranchers and farmers have literally been regulated out of business!
Those who love big government, however, are still pushing for greater government control over our foods!
Are these very highly educated individuals even aware that E coli is killed when meat is properly cooked?
The idea that this meat will be destroyed is an abomination to common sense!
