The US Department of Agriculture recently released the meat recall statistics for 2011. A shocking 60 million pounds of beef, pork, chicken and turkey products were stripped from store shelves across the nation over the last 12 months. The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) website is always being updated with ongoing recalls in an effort to protect you and your family from ingesting dangerous bacteria including Listeria, E.Coli, and Salmonella.
The symptoms of bacterial food poisoning include but are not limited to nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, fever, diarrhea, headache, life-threatening forms of kidney failure, and even death.
Unfortunately, large-scale meat companies have become accustomed to recalls due to contamination of meats, but the punishment for careless distribution of potentially harmful foods is little more than a slap on the wrist for such producers. Small-scale producers, however, often face much more devastating disciplinary action despite the limited distribution of their products which frequently include raw and organic foods.
