Health - Food Contamination Update

And Yurk again. This is simply huge.
A meat supplier has greatly expanded a ground beef recall, which now includes about 5.7 million pounds of fresh and frozen meat that may be contaminated with E. coli.

David Goldman, acting administrator of the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, announced on Saturday that the recall would be expanded to include products with sell-by dates from April 6-April 20. The beef, sold in 11 Western states, was distributed by California-based United Food Group LLC.
From The Associated Press via The Huffington Post.

"Greatly expanded." That's corpospeak for "it's all fucking rotten, guys, eat it at your own risk." And I like ground beef. Now how will I make Ants Climbing Trees?

Anybody out there shop at Mall Wart? Be extra careful. In fact, to be on the safe side, you should probably avoid all beef (unless it's organically raised) for a bit.
