Thanks for the link. I heard about that on the news this morning but missed the story. How do you know if the beef was packaged by Westland/Hallmark? Where does it say that on the package? I usually buy my meats at the Spartan store or Krogers and I always go look at the packaging for the brand names when I hear of a recall but I don't know where it is. Was this recalled meat on the store shelves or just in schools and fast food places?

I think most of the meat went to the school lunch program and fast food chains.
