Meat loaf dinner

About 8,500 pounds of ground beef have been recalled by Wyalusing, PA-based Cargill Meat Solutions Corp. 

This is an E. coli-related Class I recall, which designates “a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.” 

This isn’t Cargill’s first time at the recall rodeo. As I reported in November, the company was forced to recall 5,522 pounds of beef tongues because workers neglected to remove tonsils—a violation of both USDA regulations and my personal “ick” meter.

More Eggs Recalled 

Meanwhile, we have four additional egg recalls to report. The following distributors purchased their eggs from the now-infamous Wright County Egg:

  1. Litchfield, MN-based Sparboe Farms has recalled eggs distributed to grocery stores and foodservice companies in Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and Minnesota.
  2. Van Nuys, CA-based Trafficanda Egg Ranch has recalled products distributed to grocery stores and foodservice companies in California.
  3. Jackson, MS-based Cal-Maine Foods yesterday clarified the scope of its Aug. 20 egg recall.
  4. The Cardenas Market chain in California and Nevada has pulled store-brand eggs.
