The USDA's Food and Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) recently announced a Public Health Alert for raw beef tips originating from Canada due to positive tests for E. coli, a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause diarrhea, dehydration, and kidney failure.
After additional testing, more meat products from Canadian Establishment 38, XL Foods, Inc., were added to the recall. US states affected by the contaminated meat are California, Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin.
Mercy For Animals' slaughterhouse investigations have documented the filthy conditions and egregious mishandling to which farmed animals are subjected. In these dire environments, animal cruelty and human health hazards run rampant.
