Um. How Did Whole Foods Miss OUt on the June E Coli Meat Recall?

10 August 2008 at 12:58:37 PM

In an ironic story from The Consumerist, Whole Foods Market, whom you would think would be selling HEALTHY FOOD, somehow didn't get the memo about the meat they were selling BEING RECALLED BECAUSE THERE WAS E COLI IN IT!

But somehow they eventually realized it and NOW they are recalling that meat. I guess it was after some of their customers GOT SICK!

From Marlerblog

Whole Foods, paragon of the natural food marketplace, linked to an E. coli outbreak tied to Nebraska Beef Ltd.?  Goodness!  According to the Boston Globe this morning, Massachusetts health authorities are warning consumers not to eat ground beef bought from Whole Foods Markets over the last two months after seven E. coli O157:H7 infections have been linked to Nebraska Beef Ltd. Meat.

The people who fell ill -- five of whom were hospitalized -- had all eaten ground beef from Whole Foods last month.  Test results indicate that the ground beef products were part of a nationwide recall of meat produced by Nebraska Beef Ltd. because of E. coli contamination.

What I found most disturbing is this quote:

"A review of records from Whole Foods indicates that some of the stores received product from the recall list," the state said in a release. "At this time, it is not known why the food listed under the USDA recall was sold to the public after the recall date."

Well, I guess the good thing is that Whole Foods is now recalling fresh ground beef sold from June 2 through Aug. 6 at stores in the United States and Canada because the beef might be contaminated with E. coli bacteria. 

P.S. Just saw this title on the story from Socratic Gadfly - "There goes Whole Foods *gourmet* image". Bwahahahahah
