There is a massive beef recall that everyone should be aware about. It originates from XL foods in Brooks, Alberta. They are one of the largest beef
processing plants in Canada and ship North America wide.
They discovered this about a week & a half ago, and every day the recall has been expanded again and again. It is also causing some political fallout
as cutbacks in inspections & enforcement are cited by some of the causes of this here in Canada.
The recall of potentially E. coli-tainted beef products from XL Foods Inc. was expanded Saturday. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has now
added beef products carried by some Co-op stores to the growing list. Many of these stores have already removed the products from their shelves, and
have disinfected their meat freezers. CTV
Information for the Canadian recall can be found in the news story above.
Information for the USA
recall, covering ~30 states.
There are already some reports of illness for the tainted meat, lets hope nothing more serious develops.
