    It's a good idea to put your pork (or any meat) on ice if you're not going to use it immediately.

    This was a new one on me. I had not heard of this bug and was surprised at its prevalence. I will be much more careful with Pork from now on...JJ
     
  4. I hadn't heard of that one either!
    I just happened to stumble upon a link to the article while I was reading news yesterday.


    IMHO, I don't think folks should by ground pork (or any ground meat), buy whole cuts and grind them yourself.

  6. Made me shudder! I'll grind my own. Copied it to an article here at the forum.
