Meat recalls increasing

Bill Marler's Marlerblog has a post commenting on the recent increase in meat-related E. coli 0157:H7 outbreaks.

Marler noted that for the first time since 2002, the number of meat recalls and E. coli outbreaks connected to ground beef has been increasing. “The CDC and USDA’s numbers have shown significant declines in E. coli outbreaks traced back to contaminated ground beef since 2002, and our client-base was backing those numbers up,” Marler continued. “Most of our E. coli cases in the last five years have been the result of contaminated produce, but not this year – we’ve filed lawsuits against California, Minnesota, and Oregon beef producers in the last six months.
