Red Meat and Eggs: Killers of the Week!
Check your fridges, citizens -- those eggs you fried up for breakfast might be toxic! Yep, it's another major salmonella recall, this time for Costco's Kirkland brand organic brand eggs. Information on the recall and plant codes can be found here. And while you're in there, you might want to toss the hamburgers and steaks as well: those of you who consume more than 4 ounces of red meat a day are at a 30% higher risk for cancer and heart disease, according to a new study of over 500,000 Americans. Now might be a good time to pick up a flexitarian diet.
