Frozen Beef -- February 2008 The USDA recalled 143 million pounds of processed frozen beef from the Westland/Hallmark plant in California amid concerns that cattle were not properly inspected. It was the largest U.S. beef recall – enough meat for 2 hamburgers for every American, CNN reported.

BOISE, Idaho -

A southwestern Idaho company is recalling 33,500 pounds of fully cooked meat and poultry products because of possible bacterial contamination.
    
The United States Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Saturday that Boise-based B and D Foods is recalling a variety of meat products that could be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections.
    
Five different products containing beef, pork or chicken are being recalled. California, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Montana, Arizona and Ohio have received some of the products.
    
The agency says the problem was discovered by the company through microbiological testing. The agency says no illnesses have been reported.
