A carbon-neutral burger? It’s not impossible.

  A carbon-neutral burger? It’s not impossible. Beef has become one of the central villains of the climate crisis. Many environmentalists limit their cow consumption or eat entirely from lower levels of the food chain . But though it's true that global figures on beef's carbon hoofprint are worrisome, they perhaps also gloss over the complex system that these cows are a part of. There are many, many ways of producing burgers and steaks—and some ranchers argue cattle can actually be a force for good. In fact, cattle might play a surprising role in mitigating climate change.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says some corned beef and pastrami meats distributed in British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba are being recalled due to Listeria.

The products made by Nossack Fine Meats Ltd. are called Butcher's Pride Corned Beef and Pastrami. They were both sold with a best before marker of 2019NO27.

No reported illnesses

The CFIA says consumers should not eat the products and distributors such as retailers and food service establishments like hotels, restaurants, cafeterias, hospitals and nursing homes should not sell or use the recalled products.

Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the location where they were purchased.

Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled, but can still make people sick.

Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.

The CFIA says there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of the recalled products.
