The “largest meat recall in U.S. history”

Pilgrim’s Pride/Wampler is recalling 27.4 million pounds of cooked sandwich meat after warnings of possible contamination from the listeria bacteria—the largest meat recall in U.S. history.”

Seems like there have been an awful lot of multi-million pound recalls of meat in the past five years. Perhaps this is why food safety is finally becoming an election issue for representatives of major political parties. Of course, I’m skeptical that the meat industry will ever really be held accountable while our representatives are still accepting large donations from the industry it seeks to regulate.

The Veg Blog has made the move from Blogger to Movable Type. Let me tell you: it was quite a process.

Importing the entries from Blogger to Movable Type wasn’t a big deal. Even importing the entries from dotcomments to Movable Type was pretty easy. What was a time suck was titling and categorizing 340 separate entries!

But, phase one (the most complex phase) of the transition is complete. Commenting is enabled and Trackback will be enabled from this post forward. What’s to come? I’m going to MT-ize the “Features” and “Recipes” sections, which will make life easier on me and allow you all to comment on specific features and recipes.

Posting should pick up signficantly in the coming weeks. Thanks for sticking around and continuing to support the Veg Blog for the past two years!
