Beef Recall

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is urging the public to check all ground beef products in their freezers after a country-wide recall due to possible E.coli contamination. For all you meat eaters out there, the beef recall that was announced a few weeks ago  now covers approximately 135 different beef products distributed under various brand names including President’s Choice, Best Value, Calgary Stampede, Country Morning Gold, Exclusive Selections, Grillhouse, Irresistibles, Keg, Licks and Maple Lodge Farms.

While the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is advising consumers not to eat these products, they say people have consumed one of the affected products do not need to be overly worried as long as the beef was cooked to appropriate temperatures — usually between 71 to 74 degrees C.
