Ground Beef Recalled Due to E. Coli, USDA Replacing Automatic Weapons

  • Some 1.8 million pounds of ground beef products are being recalled due to possible E. coli contamination.

    The meat is linked to 11 cases of E. coli.

    According to USDA’s Food, Safety and Inspection Service, Detroit-based Wolverine Packing Company had shipped the meat for restaurant use in Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio. The recalled ground beef products were produced from March 31 to April 18, according to the USDA.

    The best way for consumers to reduce their risk is to avoid ordering undercooked burgers and ask to have the meat cooked to 160 degrees.

  • Last week we reported on the USDA’s request to procure weapons and body armor which has raised a few eyebrows.

    But a response from USDA’s Office of Inspector General says the procurement pertains to OIG’s effort to replace automatic firearms with new semi-automatic firearms.

    According to OIG’s General Counsel, Paul Feeney, the criminal investigation responsibilities and impact of OIG are quite extensive and OIG Special Agents are authorized to make arrests, execute warrants and carry firearms.
