Recall: 143 Million Lbs. of Beef

This story is just too emotional an issue for me to say much more than the title. There's been enough information circulating about Mad Cow Disease in the U.S. for quite some time. Obviously our government agencies are not working for the welfare of the population as much as the corporations.

Many of these recalls are announced AFTER the products have already been consumed. This one affecting so many school children just has me more upset because to me children are the true innocents in our world.

Then there's the issue of animal welfare and the humane treatment of animals used for food. Words just don't come to mind. Read the entire story.

It's time for the U.S. to boycott the meat industry and buy from local farmers. Here's some links to places where you can search for local options by zip code. Spend some time on these websites educating yourself in safe foods. You also support family farms. If we lose them, we're dependent on big industry and the government for our foods, and that's a scary thought.
