Largest Beef Recall in US History

Of course this is a horrible story. But what is going to happen to all that recalled beef? It certainly isn't going to be consumed by the people of the US, but should it be thrown away? It seems that consumption does not really represent a serious health risk We should send it off to those starving. That's a solid 500 MILLION hamburgers. I hope it doesn't go to waste.

Why are we feeding our kids cattle anyway? They should be eating chicken and fish. Has P.E. been replaced by Madden 2008 in the gym?
