This beef recall probably won't affect any of the rest of you. My local Wegman's, which I shopped at yesterday, called to tell me that the ground beef I bought yesterday is being recalled. A part in their meat grinder broke SOMETIME yesterday and there may be metal shards in the ground beef.
Obviously I used my Wegman's membership card when I shopped, so they knew that I had bought ground beef. I don't even really know WHY I use the card there - I KNOW it let them monitor what I buy and isn't usually tied in to any discounts. It's a violation of OPSEC. But this time it paid off. I know to return the meat.
On a Pagan note ... once I got the meat home SOMETHING told me to NOT immediately form it into 1/4 pound patties and individually freeze them. I left the meat in a cooler (my fridge being pretty full) with ice packs instead. That was a good 'something'.
Why "Something" couldn't have told me in the STORE not to buy the stuff, thus saving me a trip back there, is not clear. I'll have to find out why what wonderful whatever I'll get from driving the 6 mile round trip later, I guess.
Nevermind, now I know. Just after I got home yesterday, FedEx dropped off a check from a client. I need to drive back to that city to deposit it. I refused the Chubby Hubby's request that I do that same afternoon. I said that I was SURE that one of us would be returning to the city in the next few days.
I guess tweaking me was seen by 'SOMETHING' as easier than getting FedEx to drop off the check earlier...
