Thanks for posting Liz. Fortunately, I'm not in any of the states effected but I hope that anyone who is takes the proper precautions. Ecoli can be very scary.

Thanks for the heads up. Another reason to buy locally raised grass-fed beef!! I wouldn't touch beef from a factory (especially ground) with a 10-foot pole...!

Thanks Liz for the heads up. I hadn't heard about this. Fortunately I'm not in an affected state. When we travel we do the fast food thing so I like to be aware of this kind of thing!
