Until we go back to raising farm animals free range and eliminiating the additives and hormones we are going to continue to see these recalls. It is sickening to see those animals that can barely stand up and god only knows what we are putting into our bodies.

There must be some way to get a property tax refund from the schools over this.

Mebbe APS can recoup what they spent on this meat by sellin' in to Aldi's.(chuckle)
Or, have the distributors & APS administrators taste test it. If they survive, tacos for everyone Friday.

Truly sad all the way around.

The kiddos would be better off with rice & beans.

If you eat meat you don't produce chances are there is a vast number of animal cruelty issues that remains undetected. So stop being hipocrits and pass the burgers.

Who are these authorities who are contending that no one has become ill as a result of the already consumed contaminated beef.

How would a parent know for certain that a child having had become ill over the past month or so wasn't affected by the contaminated meat?

It may have been seen as a virus or the flu, and why would a Dr. who may have seen some of these children have known to diagnose the illness as such?
Looks to me like someone is just trying to avoid a possible panic and maybe even some unwelcome litigation in the aftermath. No use trying to sweep this under the rug.

It's an outrage and should be addressed as such.

We cannot continue to let Big Brother get away with cheating us by hook and by crtook!
