Yet Another Meat Recall

It feels like there is something in the papers, almost weekly, to give me another reason to thank Jane for suggesting we change over to a vegan diet. On Saturday, May 3rd, Gourmet Boutique, LLC, announced a voluntary recall of 286,320 pounds of fresh and frozen beef, pork, and poultry products. That's more than a quarter MILLION pounds of meat. The reason: the recalled products may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes which can cause listeriosis. Listeriosis is primarily of concern to newborn infants, the elderly, and the immunocompromised, where it can manifest as septicemia, meningitis, encephalitis, pneumonia, or gastrointestinal ailments among other diseases/conditions.

The USDA has three levels of recall, one being the most severe. This recall is a level one recall:

This is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.

Frightening! Please make sure to pass this information along to all your meat eating friends and relatives. For additional information see the USDA Recall Release (PDF file), or you can call the company's recall hotline at (347) 887-0083.
