It was a week ago today that the first product recall was issued that we became aware of in the new year.  It was a baby stroller sold at target.  As we said then, there may have been other recalls but they didn't hit our radar.  Well, here comes the next recall and it concerns food.  In fact, it's in a category that makes everyone nervous: beef.

According to clickondetroit.com, the USDA is recalling raw ground beef sold in Michigan due to possible contamination.  Here’s the info from USDA:
