USDA issues largest beef recall in history

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- School districts around the country are trying to find out if any of the meat involved in the biggest beef recall in U.S. history is still headed for school lunches. The school district in Grand Rapids, Michigan, will have to throw out 10 tons of hamburger meat. It was an undercover video that triggered the recall. More than 140 million pounds of beef was recalled from a Southern California slaughterhouse after the video showed crippled and sick animals being shoved with forklifts. No illnesses have been linked to the newly recalled meat, and officials say the health threat is likely small. The recall will affect beef products dating to February 1, 2006.
