Good reason to become a vegetarian, n'est pas?

A Canadian packing plant of IBP Inc.
voluntarily recalled 46,000 pounds of
ground beef products Saturday because
of possible contamination with E. coli
0157:H7, the second recall in two days
for the United States' largest beef

. . .

The bacteria can cause bloody diarrhea and
dehydration. Children, the elderly and
people with suppressed immune systems are
the most susceptible.
