Canadians and Beef... What is the scoop

carriej22 | Oct 4, 2012 07:08 PM

Hi Folks,

Due to all the recent recalls, etc on this whole e coli madness.. What are ya'll doing? Eating beef, avoiding beef, cooking the snot out of it until it's gray and rock-like?

We are pretty big beef eaters here, lean ground beef makes it's way into something probably once a week and we enjoy other cuts once a week either in stews, stir frys, bakes or just a plain ol steak with mushrooms and onions. Can't beat that.

I'm immunocompromised - I can't get that e coli. I understand cooking kills it, but I do not eat "well done" steaks. I'd rather not eat a steak, than eat a well done one. So.. Avoid until further notice? Purge my freezer of beef products?

I'm interested to hear what everyone else is doing...

Want to stay up to date with this post?
