While Meat Facts was on vacation, the Denver Post continued to follow the ConAgra recall situation. Since the national press has essentially dropped the story, you may not have heard that in addition to 47 documented illnesses, a woman in Ohio has died from the E.Coli in that batch of beef. Meanwhile, a former ConAgra employee is suing the company for fraud - charging that they intentionally altered records - and episodes from its history are coming to light, such as the time it resold listeria-tainted meat in the U.S. after it had been rejected by South Korea, and of course didn't bother to mention the contamination. A pattern of arrogance, a pattern of abuse.
