HOLY COW!!


So here's the latest beef - The Westland/Hallmark Meat Company in Chino, CA, -
issued the largest beef recall in history, 143 million pounds, some of which was used in school lunch programs.
Here's the part I love -
Agriculture officials said there was little health risk from the recalled meat because the animals had already passed pre-slaughter inspection and much of the meat had already been eaten.
How do you recall meat that's already been eaten?

The recall follows an incredibly disturbing undercover video released by the Humane Society -
showing workers kicking cows, ramming them with forklift blades, applying electric shocks and even using waterboarding
Waterboarding!? Are they terrorist cows?

I hear the Bush administration also tapped their phone lines.

The effectiveness of the Humane Society's video (which triggered this recall) demonstrates how technology compels all citizens and organizations to be ever more diligent about complying with laws and regulations.
