The USDA, a.k.a the meat industry's PR agency, has once again pulled off a great coup - this has made barely a blip in the news: That ol' JL Foods listeria recall from the beginning of the month - you know, the one for a measly 200,000 pounds? Well, testing from that plant's production has confirmed listeria ON the poultry products and the recall has been expanded to 4.2 million pounds - in other words, the entire summer's production of turkey products. Scroll - and scroll, and scroll - through this list of the varieties suspected of having the deadly, feces-based bacteria on them and you will be entertained or aghast, or both. Think about it: This is one of the plants that they actually caught. Happy Thanksgiving dinner!
