Ft. Morgan Meatpacker recalls 66.3 tons of beef after E-coli outbreak kills one, injures 17

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 21, 2018

Yes, dear readers, this is the same Cargill meatpacker that paid Somali workers $1.5 million over an Islamic prayer break dispute (reported here just last week!).


Cargill plant

The Cargill plant sits right at the edge of town


Here is the story at the Denver Post:

Cargill Meat Solutions of Fort Morgan is recalling 66.3 tons of ground beef products following an outbreak of one death and 17 illnesses that were reported due to E. coli contamination.


Food investigators determined that everyone sickened had purchased raw meat at grocery stores supplied by Cargill, Machuca said.

The identity of the deceased person has not been released.


In a statement on Thursday, Cargill said all of the affected products have been removed from supermarkets. Food safety teams are reviewing the Fort Morgan facility and others “to ensure we continue to deliver safe food,” the statement said.

“We were distressed to learn a fatality may be related to an E.coli contamination of one of our products,” it said. “Our hearts go out to the families and individuals affected by this issue.”

A little more here for those of you who might want to check the meat you bought earlier this summer that might still be in your freezer.

A personal note:

In the summer of 2016, I visited Ft. Morgan to see what the situation was there relating to the influx of Somali refugee workers for Cargill.

I haven’t bought beef since, and here is why.

I’m an animal lover, and we raised beef cattle for 20 years.  We loved our cattle and treated them humanely, but they did become someone’s dinner.  However, when I saw the miles and miles of feedlots with thousands of beef cattle standing in those hot feedlots going in to Ft. Morgan I was appalled.  No cover from the summer sun and waiting to be slaughtered by Cargill, I was finished.

If you love eating beef, find a reputable producer near where you live and buy directly from that farmer or rancher.

The meatpackers are changing America with their desire for cheap immigrant labor, don’t send them your money!

    I agree we should stop all muslim immigration but we should accept Christian refugees

    Does Cargill sell meat in Kentucky? And do you think the Muslims contaminated the meat intentionally to sicken and kill some kafirs?

      I don’t know the answer to your questions. Everyone should be paying attention to where their meat comes from. Do some research where you live and where you shop.

  6. Reblogged this on islamnewworldorder and commented:
    When you buy meat (any food, actually) if it was “handled” by a muslim, please remember their REALLY questionable sanitary habits.
    A question: is Cargill still hiring muslims? What about all the other giant meat processors? I’m afraid we know the answer.
    Make Americans sick–is this part of the muslim brotherhood takeover plan?

    The story is under a paywall. What and where are the grocery stores that sold the contaminated meat??

    Thank you for the personal note in this post Ann. My wife and I noticed the same thing some years ago realizing the entire wait in line they were well aware of what awaited them at the end on it too. Food for thought or not . . .
