business news in context, analysis with attitude

USA Today this morning reports that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is urging consumers to throw away more than 90 different products that may contain meat that comes from a Castleberry's Food Co. plant in Georgia. The meat has been linked to a botulism outbreak that has caused at least four people to get sick.

Castleberry's reportedly has closed the plant while it conducts an investigation, and the company, according to the story, “has hired an outside firm to visit more than 8,500 retailers around the country in an effort to quickly get recalled products off store shelves.”
