Fast Food Turns Out "Junk" Food.

It’s scary when stores issues recalls in the wake of contamination or other health-related (and sometimes even not) problems with the food products they sell. But it seems to have happened again, and this time it’s coming from a Walmart in the United States.
Walmart has announced that they’re recalling more than 5,000 pounds of pork, veal, and beef products from stores in Virginia, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New York, North Carolina, and South Carolina. So, if you’ve bought meat products from a Walmart from any of those states, maybe skip the idea of meat in your dinner for the time being.
The recall comes from Macho Farms which says that veal, beef, and pork products may be contaminated by the non-O157 Shiga toxin, a toxin that can produce E. Coli. So if you, or someone you know has purchased these any of these meat products from your local Walmart, it’s time to take them back or throw them away, immediately!
And if you feel that you may have consumed these meats in the recent past (some time this month), it doesn’t hurt to check in with a doctor to make sure that any potential contamination hasn’t negatively impacted your body.
