We were cleaning out our freezer when I stumbled upon a “diced beef” package. I remembered hearing in passing about a recall on it. Luckily, my package of meat was not the ones that were recalled, but I figured, if I have meat in my freezer that I have a question on, maybe you do too! Especially if you’re like me and travel to Oregon and load up on tax-free meat!
