Topps Meat Co. Goes out of Business

Just a few days after they issued the second-largest beef recall in U.S. history, Topps Meat Co. announced this month that it's going out of business.

The 21.7 million-pound recall of ground beef might have been contaminated with the E. coli bacteria strain O157:H7. These bacteria are found in the intestines of cattle, and improper butchering and processing can cause the E. coli to get onto meat.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention thirty people in eight states had E. coli infections matching the strain found in the Topps patties and fortunately there have been no human fatalities.

The Topps Meat Co. recall is just one more in the extensive list of recalls in the meat industry. The way we raise and slaughter animals is conducive to disease transmittal and food contamination. The transition to a plant-based diet can help us protect our health, the environment and God’s animals.
