On February 14, 2014, the USDA announced in a press release that Rancho Feeding Corporation, based out of California, were recalling the products, "because it processed diseased and unsound animals and carried out these activities without the benefit or full benefit of federal inspection".

Therefore, the USDA declared, "the products are adulterated, because they are unsound, unwholesome or otherwise are unfit for human food and must be removed from commerce."

A full list of the recalled products can be found in the press release.

Does this have you thinking about the sources of your meat?

Buying local is a way to get 'closer' to your food, and see where it comes from, and how it is treated, fed and raised.

You can find local producers on Local Harvest, and many will allow you to see the farm where the animals are raised and the conditions in which they are kept.

Where you are not able to raise and slaughter your own animals for meat, the homesteading ethos can be kept 'in the family' by buying local.In this way you support other local families in their quest to get closer to their food and keep your hard earned dollars in the community as opposed to financing big box stores.
