New York Firm Recalls Fresh Ground Beef Products Due To Possible E. coli O157:H7 Contamination

Anyone who reads this blog probably already knows to buy local grass-fed beef.  Michael Pollin spoke about this strain of E. coli in the movie, Food Inc.  He said that this strain of E. coli mutated in the favorable environment of the grain-fed cows' stomachs.  Once one cow developed this strain, it can then poop it all over and because these cows walk around in each other's shittola all day on those nasty feed lots, the E. coli spreads around quite effectively.  Start buying local beef.  Increase demand for pasture-fed cows and this strain of E. coli won't be a worry to anyone.  Make sure the cows you eat are not finished on corn, either.  Grass-fed all the way.  To read more about the latest recall visit this USDA website
