Ground Beef Recall

And THIS is why I avoid purchasing ground beef. The article is admittedly a few weeks old, but it's more in knowing that it happened at all.

Fresh and frozen ground beef with sell-by dates of April 6 thru April 20th, potentially tainted with the e-coli bacteria, have been recalled. United Food Group shipped the meat which was primarily sold under the Moran’s label at Albertsons stores in California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming, as well as a few stores in Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. Other brand names the meat was sold under: Miller Meat Company, Stater Brothers, Trader Joes Butcher Shop, Inter-American Products and Basha's.

Even my poor Trader Joe's is on that list :-(

If you think you might have been affected, you might want to check your freezers for any of this product.
