Thanks, Josh Ozersky, for bringing this to our attention: “The nation was put on emergency meat alert this past weekend when 9 million pounds of beef were recalled after the USDA declared them ‘unsound, unwholesome, or otherwise unfit for human food.'”
Apparently, these weren’t hamburgers nor steaks, but offcuts like heads, cheeks, lips, sweetbread, and tripe. Josh Ozersky is a fan of offal, so he has pulled together a “working list of meats to fear, culled from the USDA’s recall.” Check it out here.
