The XL Foods beef recall has expanded yet again, this time it includes steaks as well as ground beef and many other beef products. The best way to stay up to date with what has been recalled and what retail outlets have been advised of these recalls is the Canadian Food Inspection Agency(CFIA) website’s Food Recalls & Alergy Alert page. This recall is huge and includes almost every major grocery chain in Canada, if you have any beef on the list please throw it away, even if it is frozen it still carries E. coli O157:H7 bacteria.
This is a great reason to start buying local meats, they taste better, are better for you and are much safer.
