Beef Recall
Monday, February 18, 2008
I thought The Jungle was fictionalized history.

Major beef recall - 143 million pounds. In Sounthern California, the Westland/Hallmark plant has been prodding sick and crippled animals with forklifts to make hamburger meat. Hamburger meat that was shipped to schools,uost of which has already met a lunch lady fate.

At least someone is actually taking notice of this one.
"This begs the question: How much longer will we continue to test our luck with weak enforcement of federal food safety regulations?" - U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin, chairman of the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry.
