Just a meat safety quick note:
The FDA has posted a recall notice by Valley Meats of Illinois. There are a number of brand names involved including, to name a few, 3S, Grillmaster, J & B, and Klub. In total, about 96,000 thousand pounds of meat are potentially involved.
The meat was processed in March and in larger packages including a number of the recalls involving burger patties, pre-formed and ready to grill. So, this would be a freezor check.
The concern is E-coli. There are reports of three people being hospitalized with food poisoning from eating the products.
The recall is NOT on fresh meats out on the shelves now. But, if you buy ahead, then do double check the brands and numbers on the link at the top of the post. No one wants to be sick on a three day weekend.
