Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Kroger and USDA Issue Recall for Ground Beef
The USDA late Wednesday issued a recall regarding ground beef sold by Kroger.
In a release, the USDA says the Cincinnati-based Kroger Company is recalling an undetermined amount of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157-H7.
The USDA says products included in the recall are all varieties and weights of ground beef products sold between May 21st and June 8th in Columbus and Toledo and in Michigan. The products include sell-by dates between 05/21/08 and 06/08/08.
This is a Class 1 recall which carries the highest possible health risk. The USDA notes E. coli 0157-H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration and in severe cases kidney failure.
