And another find in the stash:
OK....I'm back up to snuff in Large Blue Socks....thank you for bearing with me...I'll see what other colours I can find to knit next week.
It seems that President's Choice (huge higher end grocery label) is dropping their Ontario Corn Fed Beef from their lineup in Ontario supermarkets. Bucking the current consumer trend to shop 'closer to home' a la 100 Mile Diet, and even acknowledging the success of the local corn fed program, the chain is dropping the line so it can offer a 'National Line' instead - to avoid duplication of warehousing costs.
I read that article upstairs in 'the reading room'. And when I got downstairs I checked my online news site to see what was going on in the world (other than the MJ saga), what before my eyes does appear?
President's Choice is undergoing a massive recall of their beef due to e-coli contamination.
It would be funny except I'm sure the will make up the loses by paying the farmer even less next go around.
That can make a farmer grumpy!
