A reader emailed me about a big new E. coli recall, involving 96,000 pounds of ground beef. He writes:
Perhaps this is indicitive of the new presidential administration, they’re issuing the recall for Beef produced on May 10th. In the previous administration, they would’ve waited until August or September to issue the recall — to make sure that 99% of the meat had already been consumed.
On the one hand, that’s a very cynical way of looking at things. On the other hand, it’s exactly right.
It’ll be interesting to see how much of this 96,000 pounds ends up being recovered. Link.
