'Meat may be contaminated with hydraulic fluid'


That's the headline over the latest news from Milwaukee, my old home town.

I was wondering how come it went down so easily.

Turns out over 61 tons (123,000 pounds) of ground beef made at the Emmpak Foods plant in Milwaukee may have been contaminated with hydraulic fluid.

Wonder what that tastes like, anyhow?

Seems a customer complained to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, which swung into action.

Not to worry: most of the meat — 101,000 pounds of it, anyway — was sold in Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana.

But 22,000 pounds did make its way to Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Pennsylvania.


That's a lot of hamburgers.

I remember once reading that a good way to stop someone in the adjoining airplane seat from talking to you is to reply, when they ask what you do, "I sell industrial fluids."
