We recall 100 blue whales’ worth of meat a year via @grist

The USDA recalled an average of nearly 43 million pounds of meat each year between 2005 and 2014. That’s roughly 100 blue whales’ worth of meat a year. A lot of it was recalled for quality control reasons that almost certainly were not a risk to anyone. I’m looking at you, Hickory Smoked Sliced Bacon containing an undeclared substance. And you, Chicken Nugget Products with extraneous material. The amount of meat recalled varies every year When something does pose a health risk, it’s called a Class 1 Recall. In that same time period, there was an average of about 27 million pounds of meat recalled under Class I every year. Still, that amount of recalled meat is just a drop in the bucket compared to food waste. U.S. stores throw out 43 billion pounds of food a year, or 100,000 blue whales’ worth of food.
