62,000 Pounds of Beef Recalled Just Before Memorial Day Weekend
You might want to do Veggies, Chicken, Shrimp, or some kind of pork on the grill this Memorial Day Weekend, normally a popular weekend for barbecuing, because the FDA has recalled 63,000 pounds of beef due to the threat of E-Coli contamination.
The products were packaged on April 19 and shipped nationwide. The beef subject to the recall has the establishment number "EST. 788" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The News Story also encourages Food Safety this weekend:
The CDC also reemphasized basic food safety rules, which include washing hands and any surfaces that touch raw meat, cooking ground beef to an internal temperature of 160 degrees, and keeping raw meat separate from other foods that won't be cooked.
