More Than 60 Thousand Pounds of Ground Beef Recalled for E.Coli Contamination

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that the National Beef Packing Co. has recalled 60,424 pounds of ground beef products after inspection at an Ohio processing plant revealed potentially dubious signs of contamination by e.coli 0157:H7 bacteria.

The beef was shipped to distributors nationwide for further processing and distribution.

Without more regulation of the food industry and especially factory farms, this will become a much more common occurrence.

Recalls are costly and contamination can often be deadly.

Unbridled by regulation the population continues to be subject to illness and death.

How much longer can we afford to consume without conscience?
