Totally Recalled: ground beef that’s contaminated with salmonella (not the E. coli of yestermonth)
The product: Intercity Packers Ltd. Beef Burger Meat Mix 80/20
The UPC: 90066172180172
Lot code: 046
Establishment number: 503
The Details: It appears the sleuths at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency have been up to more that just tracking E. coli outbreaks—now they’re warning Canadians that a beef burger mix from Mississauga’s Intercity Packers (East) Ltd. could be contaminated with salmonella. According to the CFIA, the mix has been distributed in both Ontario and Newfoundland, and officials in Ottawa and southern Ontario are conducting an investigation into outbreaks of salmonella-associated illnesses. Even worse, salmonella-contaminated food doesn’t necessarily look or smell spoiled, and can cause everything from fevers and chills to diarrhea and vomiting. Back to your freezers, folks. [CFIA]

Beef industry is heading the way of the dodo if they can’t provide a safe product.
Unsafe food products are not limited to only the Beef Industry. I went to the CFIA link in the article and found Salmonella concerns for: tahina, sprouting seeds, jalapeno peppers, & curry powder, as well as Hepatitis A concerns for berries, and Cryptosporidium concerns for parsley. Someone is out to get the vegans.
