E. coli Republicans poison our meat supply
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.
Goldman said that none of the latest batch of suspect beef is in stores now because the product would be well past its expiration date, but consumers may still have some of the meat at home.
"It is important for consumers to look in their freezers," Goldman said.
Wow, just in time for the summer grilling season, too!

he affected grocery stores included Albertson's, Basha's, Grocery Outlet, Fry's, "R" Ranch Markets, Save-A-Lot, Save-Mart, Scolari's Wholesale Markets, Smart and Final, Smith's, Stater Bros. and Superior Warehouse.
E. coli is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause stomach cramps and diarrhea that may turn bloody. E. coli can sometimes lead to complications including kidney failure.
Customers with questions about the recall can call United Food Group's hot line at 1-800-325-4164.
I've got questions about a lot more than the recall, but somehow I don't think United's call centers are going to have the answers...
