E. Coli Rears Its Head in California

Just in case you were looking for that next meat recall, here’s one from California:

The USDA announced yesterday that Huntington Meat Packing Inc., a Montebello, Calif. establishment, is recalling approximately 864,000 pounds of beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.

Although I couldn’t find a website for the company, the online information I dug up indicates it employs approximately three people.

Usually, these E. coli situations occur at major feedlots. So I’m curious what’s going on here. That’s a heck of a lot of wasted meat. And only three people to do the work?
