Walmart announced this week that they will be recalling 90,000 pounds of beef because they could possibly contain “extraneous wood materials.”
According to a press release from the USDA, The Sam’s Choice Black Angus Vidalia Onion items which were produced on various dates between Nov. 19, 2015, and Dec. 9, 2015 are at risk of contamination.
The press release stated that:
The foreign material originated with an incoming ingredient and was discovered during production. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
The beef patties were produced by the Huisken Meat Company, which is based in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota.
The food products sold at Wal-Mart are known to be questionable.
As we reported last year, a mother accidentally discovered that Wal-Mart ice cream bars will not melt, even when exposed to very hot temperature, after she left one of the bars out in the sun for an extended period of time. Her discovery sparked experiments across the country which all ended up with the same results: something inside of the ice cream bars is preventing them from melting. After testing the product more thoroughly, Consumer Reports linked the slow melt time with the various gums that are injected into the ice cream.
Wal-Mart recently rolled out a new public relations scheme to improve their public image, and make people think that they care about the environment.
Unfortunately, as Stacy Mitchell of Grist recently pointed out, Wal-Mart’s new environmentally friendly promise is a total lie, even according to the company’s own writing.
Starting recently, Wal-Mart is now tagging over 3,000 of its products with a new “Sustainability Leaders” label, which gives the impression that they are doing something for the environment, but in reality the label means absolutely nothing.
In the fine print of Walmart’s sustainability shopping portal reads the following warning, “The Sustainability Leaders badge does not make representations about the environmental or social impact of an individual product.”
