I’m sure you’ve seen the news about the huge recall of beef by the USDA. Put aside the perversion of torturing sick cows into walking the four steps required by law and then using a forklift to throw them around – let’s pretend that’s not a problem – it is unacceptable that this is what we are feeding ourselves. In addition to all the obvious health issues, its just gross.
This kind of thing (like lead in toy recalls) brings up the question for me that the media never answers. “Okay, this is terrible, but what can I do?”
One thing is to know the source of your food – EatWild.com has a map to find your local farmer who sells USDA approved beef and in conditions that you can actually see for yourself.
Any other ideas out there?
