Beef is Back

But Will You Buy it?

As of yesterday, 2,000 workers went back to XL Foods, the Alberta plant at the epicentre of the E. coli outbreak that saw much of Canada's beef recently recalled. But the big question on everyone's lips is, Will you buy? Do you trust that beef products are safe?

Mayor Martin Shields assuaged public fears by saying that officials will continue to monitor production practices at the plant which has been taken over by JBS USA, an American subsidiary of a Brazilian company. 

At the height of the recalls, the CFIA revoked the plant's license which it resumed last week. According to an article in the Huffington Post, the E. coli crisis "made at least 16 people sick."

Do you feel enough has been done to restore the faith of consumers post E. coli crisis? Will you be stocking your freezer with beef again?
