For those of you who eat meat or have children in the public schools, recent headlines might have been a little scary. More than 140 million pounds of beef are being recalled by the Chino, CA., plant that processed it. Why? Because the plant, Hallmark Meat Processing, was found to use “downer” cows for its burgers and meatloaf.
Kevin Weeks noticed this little item two weeks ago and wrote about it. “USDA – ‘D’ is for Downer”. This week, he’s back with some sharp comments about how the USDA isn’t as much protection as you might think: No Prevention, No Cure.”
