72,800 Pounds Beef Recalled

It’s been a banner week for the beef industry: a 60,000 pound beef recall a week ago, and a nearly 73,000 pound recall yesterday; both for E. coli.

As is often the case, the recall’s happening far too late to do much good. It was prompted by two E. coli illnesses that occurred a month ago, and the meat subject to recall was sold up to a year ago. (Thanks, Bea.)
