143 million pounds of missing beef
Recently, the USDA announced the largest recall of beef in the nation's history -- 143 million pounds. A significant number of "downer" cows-- cows too sick to stand-- had been processed into beef, despite USDA rules forbidding this. A substantial portion of the recalled beef was distributed to schools for school lunches.
Where is that recalled meat? Was it delivered to schools in Gifford, and if so, which ones? Finding that out isn't easy. The Bush Administration knows, but it won't tell you.
You have a right to know about the quality and health of food in your community. Tell the Bush Administration to disclose all schools and retail stores involved in meat recalls!
Thanks for taking action!
