Beef has been a real headline-maker this year with two massive recalls. In May, the Wolverine Packing Company in Detroit, Michigan recalled 1.8 million pounds of ground beef products that were potentially contaminated by E. coli 0157:H7, which is among the top five pathogens that contribute to hospitalization from foodborne illness. The second big recall came out of Petaluma, California's Rancho Feeding Corporation and involved nearly nine million pounds of beef and veal products. They were found processing diseased and unsound animals without inspection.
