Two Friday-afternoon meat recalls to report: The Chicago Tribune brings word that the Texas-based Caviness Beef Packers plant has recalled 23,100 pounds of beef trimmings due to possible E.coli contamination. The products, made between August 14 and 20, were sold to unnamed Texas fast-food chains and retail outlets. Meanwhile, beleaguered poultry company Foster Farms has issued a recall of 40,000 pounds of frozen chicken thanks to possible Listeria contamination: The frozen grilled chicken products were distributed to retail locations, including Costco, across the Western United States.
