More Beef Recalls!

I'm sorry to have to tell you that another recall on ground beef has been issued, this time by a Wisconsin company called American Foods Group.

Ninety-six thousand pounds of beef were voluntarily recalled after two people became ill, possibly from E.coli. These cases are being investigated by the Illinois Department of Health. The meat was sold in seven states including Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Ohio, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Virginia.

The meat was produced on Oct. 10 and labeled with "Est. 18076" inside the USDA mark of inspection. If you have questions about the recall, check out the USDA's Web site or call the toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854).

Is it just me, or are these constant recalls making you scared to eat?

About 8 years ago I got food poisoning from a hamburger. Ever since then, I haven't been able to eat any beef whatsoever. I just can't.

ErinMichele...remember the spinach recall? Meat isn't the only thing that can come back to bite you. Anyhow...I work for health department in my county and I've gained a lot of perspective on this stuff. Basically, it's always something. When it's not a food recall, it's a toy recall. Before we were doing all the recalls, it was bird flu, West Nile, SARS...and so on and so on. Usually it's the powers that be rightfully recognizing that any incidence of this kind of illness should be mentioned, but everyone panics. And from that article fit linked to: "E. coli O157:H7 has been associated with a number of meat recalls in recent months. It can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration, and it is most dangerous to the very young, the very old and people whose immune systems are low." I'm not a parent, so I don't know what -that- fear is like, but I generally just shrug this stuff off. It'll be okay. And I know I was shocked at how much our health department will do to help out with your fears...you should call them up and ask!

My grandfather came down with E. Coli a few months ago. They are not really sure what he got it from, but it was horrible. He lost 30 pounds in the matter of a month, and he was in the hospital for a week, then sent home, before the CDC called and told him to return to the hospital immediately, because they had just discovered what he had, and he was hours away from it reaching his blood and killing him. He's been out of the hospital for a couple months now, but he still has a hard time holding down food. He was basically able to hold down only yogurt when I last spoke with them.

Agreed. These kind of things really freak me out. I'm trying not to worry too much though. =\
