While you are enjoying that leftover turkey and stuffing, you might want to take note of the latest ground beef recall, announced today by USDA. American Food Groups of Wisconsin has recalled almost 96,000 pounds of ground beef. The meat, which is contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, was distributed in seven states and has been tied to two reported illnesses in Illinois. This is another example of how the industry's "Test and Ship" approach to food safety puts its own interests ahead of consumer safety.
