Meat Your Maker

Recently eaten: bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with ricotta cheese
Recent annoyance: the lacks of people actually moving at the end of the year

I suppose this isn't really a surprise. USA Today found out that most recalled meat is never recovered and likely eaten. Who keeps their flank steak in the refrigerator long enough to find out a week later that some meat plant worker sneezed into your stuff?

A little food poisoning never hurt anyone, right? ("
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that in the United States alone, food poisoning causes about 76 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations, and up to 5,000 deaths each year. One of the most common bacterial forms of infection, the salmonellae organisms, account for one billion dollars in medical costs and lost work time.")
