WHERE'S THE BEEF???
That was a popular slogan on a commercial when we were kids. It featured a lil old lady who uttered those 3 words and became famous. To this day, I can't even remember what company had the commercial. I just remember that the commercial was very popular and that lil old lady got rich.
Today's question should be...what's in the beef? As you know, there was a recall on beef last week. What you may not know is that Americans already have eaten most of the 143.4 million pounds of beef involved in this week's biggest-ever U.S. meat recall. Yet the U.S. Department of Agriculture says consumers are at little risk -- even if they did eat the meat. Huh? I'm confused. As a person who eats at LEAST one burger a week, I am concerned. I try to watch what I eat. I work out and exercise 3 or 4 times a week (i should do it daily). I'd be lying if I said that this recall doesn't have me concerned about what I'm putting into my body.
The USDA said the risk is low of getting sick because no contaminated or infected beef has been found and because no human illnesses have been linked to the recalled beef. However in last September, twenty-one people in eight states may have fallen ill after eating hamburgers possibly contaminated with E. coli bacteria, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Giving up on hamburgers may become a problem for some of us (like me). It's about to get warm and that means it's time for me to break out the grill. LOL. As we try to be more conscious about what we eat, what should we do? Just become vegans? Ignore the warnings signs? Your thoughts.
