This just in: USDA Makes Nation’s Largest Beef Recall
The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Sunday ordered the recall of 143 million pounds of frozen beef from a California slaughterhouse, the subject of an animal-abuse investigation, that provided meat to school lunch programs.
Officials said it was the largest beef recall in the United States, surpassing a 1999 ban of 35 million pounds of ready-to-eat meats. No illnesses have been linked to the newly recalled meat, and officials said the health threat was likely small.
A caution to those more sensitive: the article is pretty graphic about what went down.
It is terrible that it takes something so brutal for people to realize that the systematic torture of animals is an ongoing practice.
