    Beef recall: 134 million pounds

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Sunday ordered the recall of 143 million pounds of frozen beef from a Southern California slaughterhouse that is being investigated for mistreating cattle.

    Officials said this is the largest recall in the United States, surpassing a 1999 recall of 35 million pounds [...] The amount of beef -- 143 million pounds -- is roughly enough for two hamburgers for each man, woman and child in the United States. [...] recall will affect beef products dating to February 1, 2006
    What caught my eye is that this recall is for beef dating to two years ago!?

    And from the same article:
    Raymond [USDA Undersecretary for food safety] countered a claim leveled by Humane Society President and CEO Wayne Pacelle, who said a USDA inspector was at the Westland plant for about two hours each day. USDA inspectors are there at slaughterhouses "continuously," Raymond said.
    Eh? I think that makes it even worse for the USDA - if an USDA inspector is on site "continuously", why wasn't this problem identified earlier?
    Why is everyone who drives slower than me an idiot, and everyone who drives faster a maniac?

    Funny you should mention this, because I had some tacos for lunch, and now my stomach is going "Oh no you diunt!"
    Yes, in fact, I did have Mario bed sheets
