California Plant Shuts Down After Beef Recall

PETALUMA, Calif. (AP) - A California slaughterhouse has voluntary halted operations after recalling more than 8.7 million pounds of beef products.
    
The recall began Jan. 13 and was expanded Saturday to include just over a year's worth of meat products processed by Rancho Feeding Corp. in Petaluma.
    
The U.S. Department of Agriculture said the facility processed diseased and unhealthy animals without a full federal inspection.
    
Co-owner Robert Singleton confirmed to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat on Monday (http://bit.ly/1jszBqa) that the company had temporarily ceased processing and was compiling a list of affected companies. He declined further comment.
    
The recalled products were processed from Jan. 1, 2013, through Jan. 7, 2014, and shipped to distribution centers and retail stores in California, Florida, Illinois and Texas. They include beef carcasses, oxtail, liver, cheeks, tripe, tongue and veal bones.

    PULLMAN, Wash. - Six-year-old Denny Curran should be enjoying his last few days of summer before first grade. He should be teasing his brother, splashing in the pool, giving his parents a hard time about vegetables. Instead, Denny is dead, the victim of a horrific, freak bicycle accident that could happen to your child too. "Denny was an extraordinary child," his father Keith Curran told KHQ.

    NEW YORK (AP) - Aretha Franklin is being remembered in part for the empowering message she sent her fellow women through her most famous songs. Especially her call for "a little respect." Franklin didn't see herself as a feminist heroine. But several key songs became known as feminist anthems - especially "Respect." She took the Otis Redding record and changed the meaning radically simply by saying the words in her own voice.
