Meat recall: Sam's Club pulls beef patties

October 6, 2007
BY ASSOCIATED PRESS

MINNEAPOLIS---- The Sam's Club warehouse chain has pulled a brand of ground beef patties from its shelves nationwide after four children who ate the food, produced by Cargill Inc., developed E. coli illness.

that comment was SO bizarre! how do you go from a meat recall at Sam's Club to speculating about raw cat diets?! while i realize some folks buy their raw meats for pets at Sam's and WalMart, this is a PEOPLE FOOD recall! talk about left field!! what they don't realize is, people going to lengths to feed raw or home-cooked, WILL go that extra step (mile) to keep things real and safe. i'm one of them. yes, my food budget increased quite a bit, but i adjusted and sleep VERY well at night.

lordy, when will they be concerned and protect the children? or their parents.  must say, i no longer feel *over-the-top* for buying a side plus other meats and joining up with CSA's along with my farmer's markets. they will be running scared soon and have to adjust. the more people start flying solo and dump *them* (Cargill Inc and all) and start supporting their local farmers and thriving, the more they will have to adjust. i think the *secret* is out now. there's a movement happening. And they are not part of it.

thanks for the PM! i need to read it again in the AM. very tired as it's Saturday farm day. we got a big load today, so i've been in the kitchen for many hours and am *slightly* brain dead  Wink but i'm a VERY happy camper! extra veggies today as not everyone showed up due to the holiday!i so wish i would have brought my dog hooked to a cart  Cheesy

Now that was a weird statement - this burger contamination will not pull down Wal-Mart? No I guess it won't pick-it up either/what with all their lead laden baby bibs, lead painted toys, toxic dog treats/food/pet toys loaded with lead and other metals. New entry - e.coli ground beef. So glad I stopped buying any ground beef after the first recall over 20 yrs ago. Oh and would anyone know why it took so long for this recent recall to come to the news from this Angus beef patties? This was on a recall I believe posted on here possibly from Donna. I took back the frozen, organic brand to Jewel cause was afraid that it was frozen for over 2 yrs. just like the beef that was involved in the recall. Didn't think you could safely keep beef frozen for that long without it going bad irregardless of anything else making it unsafe to eat.

(And someone took the opportunity to post a comment there trashing raw pet food because of this and a link to a fishy-looking web site dedicated to trashing raw pet food.  Wonder who would be doing something like that?)


Yeah, that is definitely weird.  A shill?  I don't feed raw, but that post really annoys me.

Cutey!

I thought frozen ground beef was only to be kept for 6 months.  If it is a solid cut of meat, it can be kept longer.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

You can ask your butcher at the meat market or grocery store about which meats they grind themselves.Also if you buy large cuts of meat,cube it & put in the freezer just long enough to firm it up[not frozen] & grind it yourself in the food processor or blender. Just do about 5-6 pieces at a time. It takes a little time but is not hard.Much safer & cheaper than preground.

you can also get a manual meat grinder pretty cheap. when i bought my side, i didn't have as much ground as most folks do because i figured i would rather grind myself if needed.

looks like a lot of this recall went to food services:

A lot of aspects to this.....

The USDA Inspected plant we use is owned by a couple that have been married 50 years and owned this business for 40...I asked about his record and he has Never had a recall for e-coli...I asked him why he thought that is and it goes back to three things in his opinion.

He really used the HACCP Program to fully evaluate his facility. It is not a PR or just meet the minimum regulations for him.

He processes one animal at a time. All the burger is from the same animal, he does not do nmass batching and blending in his grind....

He prays a lot....

Those are his reasons,

I have read where Frozen is safer. If meat is frozen for an extended period of time, a lot of the bacteria are killed. Plus, nothing needs to be added to prevent spoilage....

Patsbeef where is this couple at? Sounds like it would be a perfect place to purchase beef from. No e. coli now that in itself is a great recommendation.
