The U.S.D.A. is recalling beef products.

The U.S.D.A. has issued a recall on 5.7 million pounds of beef sold in eleven western states during the months of March and April. Fourteen people were infected with the e-coli virus after eating hamburger meat from a western meat packing plant manufactured during that period.

As all of the beef in question is past expiration date and is long out of stores and restaurants, the only place it may exist is in people's freezer's at home.

The following is a quotation from the U.S.D.A. website: Consumers should open up their freezers and check all of their packages of ground beef. They should look for the following information on the list of ingredients: "This package contains the following: ground chuck, ground round, ground mystery meat, whatever fillers we think of, and e-coli." If they see this information, people should either dispose of the meat or return it to their grocer for a full refund. This product is potentially dangerous.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
