Your government hates you: big fat fucking meat recall  »

A company from Cincinnati, Ohio called Tri-State Beef has issued a recall on nearly 229,000 pounds of ground beef because it “may be contaminated” with our old friend E. coli 0157:H7. That is over a quarter-million pounds of ground beef!

A company in Miami, Fla. called Northwestern Meat, Inc. has issued a recall on over 6,000 pounds of “frozen boneless beef products” because they tested positive for Ivermectin. Ivermectin is “a broad-spectrum anti-parasitic and is used as a de-worming agent in live animals,” and river blindness in “the Americas.” It can cause neurotoxicity. The “beef products” in question were imported from Honduras.

Both these companies had had their products inspected by federal agents before distribution to retail outlets. Your government is hard at work, protecting us citizens from—well, not E. coli or veterinary medication. Something important, surely.
