Totally Recalled: more potentially contaminated burgers, this time sold, ahem, as Best Value

The product: Best Value–brand 10 Beef Burgers and 20 Beef Burgers

The UPCs: 0 71212 88103 8 and 0 71212 88104 5, respectively

The details: Another day, another case of E. coli–contaminated beef from the good folks at New Food Classics. This time, it’s Best Value–brand burgers that, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, have been distributed to Giant Tiger and Northern Canada stores in several provinces and territories—including Ontario. The symptoms are the same as last time—abdominal pain, diarrhea, etc.—and there has only been one reported illness. The CFIA is now warning that “underlying issues” may be to blame for widespread contamination, and it’s working with Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada on an ongoing investigation. Again, we shouldn’t like to monger fear—but please grill responsibly. [CFIA]
