Companies need to take more responsibility for their products. The government should start fining (hefty fines) companies that produce such products and/or close them down.

This beef was sent to the U.S. from a Canadian company. Now wouldn't it be something if the investigation revealed that the Canadian company imported it from China? The Canadian company has shut down.

The beef recall last month involved Canadian beef that was processed by American company Topps. The Cargill recall announced yesterday appears to be American beef processed right here in PA.

Cargill is a major employer of illegal aliens. During last years rallies they gave employees the day off to attend.LaRaza had also instructed food industry workers at one point on how to put e-coli into our food.

beef is waste of good farmland and energy... and unhealthy... it's pumped full of antibiotics and hormones... making antibiotic resistant bacterial strains and causing girls to go thru menarche early...we don't need beef or milk cattle... we would be better off without them

OK, the Agriculture Department found a sample of contaminated Cargill beef on the 8th of October, and the public is only being warned about it.....yesterday?

That's nearly a good three weeks from the date the problem was found to the date Cargill finally decided to let the public know.

Actually, the way I read the article is that the beef was produced on October 8th, but the sample itself could have been taken from that beef at an undetermined later date.
