The Lady Speaks

Wyalusing PA Makes Headlines

And not in a good way.

Sorry, Endless Mountains Visitors Bureau. I don’t think this is going to help the tourism industry of northeastern PA. What there is of a tourist industry, that is.

From the AP:

The giant agribusiness company Cargill Inc. said Saturday it is recalling more than 1 million pounds of ground beef that may be contaminated with E. coli bacteria.

The ground beef was produced between Oct. 8 and Oct. 11 at Cargill Meat Solutions’ plant in Wyalusing, Pa. and distributed to retailers across the country. They include Giant, Shop Rite, Stop & Shop, Wegmans and Weis.

  1. Just cook it.
    Make sure it reaches 160 degrees internally.
    (a meat thermometer can be had at the dollar store)
    What do you think they did out on the lone prairie…they cooked the stuff..including animal found dead along the trail.
    Just cook the stuff.
    We are such babies in America.
    Plus add garlic to the burger.
    Lots of spices, lots of cooking, and you are ok.
