Meat & Illness

The tomato produce salmonella outbreak has gotten the most attention recently. But the Washington Post's Checkout blog has an interesting bit about Nebraska Beef, a recent 5.3 million pound recall of ground beef, and the company's history of litigation. Among other things, in 2006, "Minnesota public health and USDA officials linked an E. coli O157:H7 outbreak in ground beef that killed a Minnesota woman to Nebraska Beef, although USDA never publicly named the company as the source. The woman who died ate meatballs at a church event. Her family sued Nebraska Beef and the company, in turn, sued the church saying the volunteers who prepared the food were at fault." (Marler covers it here.)
