US meat recalled after mad cow concerns

‘It is the biggest food recall in US history. About 65 million kilograms of beef products from a Californian slaughterhouse have been recalled because of concerns about the plant’s production line.

Some animals were unable to stand and that has prompted concerns about their ability to be tested for infections like mad cow’s disease.

The plant is now under investigation and two of its employees have been charged with animal cruelty.

Everything from sirloin to taco meat has been recalled, as have some of the more curious by-products of the beef industry such as salivary glands and six gallon containers of beef bile.’
