The world in which we live

From the newswire:

SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) — Tyson Fresh Meats Inc. on Friday recalled more than 40,000 pounds of ground beef shipped to Wal-Mart stores in 12 states after samples tested at a Sherman, Texas, plant showed signs of E. coli contamination.

No illnesses had been reported. Springdale-based Tyson Foods Inc. said the recall is not related to contaminated ground beef distributed by California-based United Food Group LLC.

That’s right… we live in a world where one recall due to E.Coli has to differentiate itself from a complete different recall due to E.Coli.

Can someone remind me again why these folks don’t need stricter regulation and oversight?
