It’s always important to pay attention to any kind of recalls that are happening that the USDA announces. The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety, and Inspection Service does a great job of keeping the public informed of tainted meat and other edible products that may have gone bad or contain some kind of dangerous element to it.

Even if you buy a tainted product, there’s no guarantee that the USDA can know whether or not you’ve eaten it or have frozen it. But freezing a tainted product won’t make it any less dangerous so they’re asking people to check their freezers and refrigerators for Cargill Meat Solutions ground beef products that were purchased at Walmart, including locations in Ohio. In a statement released today, they described how this may impact you:
