    AS of now, perhaps... but not a very sustainable outcome. Why not instead, all petition our farms and food agencies, to say that we want organic humainly raised pastured beef?

    It was sold to be made into the slop people are served in hospitals, the military and schools. Aka: the step-up from value-brand ready-meals.
    No, it's not good. But it was never expected to be excellent, either.

    As a side-note: it was the agency in charge of withdrawing infected meat from the market who then sold it on for cheap. In other words, either they discovered that the load of Bovine TB required to harm a human was lower than previously assumed (in which case they committed fraud by confiscating it in the first place), or they were gambling with human health (and possibly lives). Either way, a criminal offense.

    Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.

    hmm, i'd prefer they remove it from general consumption and make a mistake about the TB than not. It's hardly fraud, it's being conservative and better safe than sorry, if they can offset costs by selling on safe meat then all for the better.
    If it is truly still harmful then it is a very shameful situation indeed.
