Canadian Consumers Face Largest Meat Recall in History

Tainted meat from Canada led to the largest beef recall in national history.

After 16 people became seriously ill in Canada, more than 1,800 meat products have been pulled from store shelves nationwide. More than 1.1 million kilograms of these products from a plant in Alberta were contaminated with E. coli.

The contamination originated in an XL Foods' Lakeside plant and stretches to the United States, as well, with more 30 states recalling the infected meat that was transported to the country.

The plant was closed last month with 2,000 workers being laid off. However, now the plant is being taken over and reopened by JBS USA, a subsidiary of a Brazilian company.

According to an investigation, the meat factory failed to follow safety procedures, resulting in the contamination.
