Cargill meat recall now national

The Cargill ground beef recall (blogged here) is now a Class I (Health Risk: High) recall.  Link to the Recall Release on the USDA website.  From the USDA Recall Release:

WASHINGTON, Oct. 6, 2007 - Cargill Meat Solutions Corporation is voluntarily recalling approximately 845,000 pounds of frozen ground beef patties produced at its Butler, Wis., location because they may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.


Marlerblog has additional insight on this recall:  Cargill and its subsidiaries have had E. coli problmes in the past, and I am really not that old.  (Since Marler is only a tiny bit older than I am, I'm willing to agree that he's not that old.  I don't understand why he doesn't want the AARP discounts, though. -- DMB)

Since Cargill is now into organics, could this just be part of their organic development. E. coli is as organic as you can get!
