 According to a press release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, dated Dec. 20, 2011:

On Dec. 19, 2011, at about 5:00 p.m., Sheriff Deputies were dispatched to the 3100 block of Fickle Hill Rd, Arcata, to handle a report of found human remains. The reporting party said that his children found a human skull while playing in the yard. Upon arrival the Sheriff Sergeant confirmed that the skull was in fact human remains. 
 
The father indicated said that his two young boys were playing near the tree-lined area of their yard when they discovered the skull. The boys then carried the remains into the home to show their father what they had discovered. The father believes that it is possible that one of his dogs may have found the skull in the wooded area near their home and brought it to the place where his two boys discovered it. The area was searched but no other remains were located. The Humboldt County Coroner arrived and took possession of the remains for further investigation and possible identification. 
 
The next morning search teams from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s office returned to the area. At about 11:45 a.m. the search teams located additional human remains in the wooded area southwest of where the skull was located. The decomposed condition of the body will require further forensic investigation to determine the age, sex, race and possible cause of the death.
 
Due to the unknown nature of this discovery, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Detective Division is investigating this as a suspicious death. At this time Crime Scene Investigators from the Department of Justice and the Humboldt County Coroner's Office are assisting with this investigation. Further information will be provided when available.
 
Anyone with information is requested to call the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriff's Office Crime Tip line 707-268-2539.

Nebraska firm recalls ground beef products

Written by
According to a press release from the USDA, dated Dec. 16, 2011:
Tyson Fresh Meats Inc., a Dakota City, Neb. establishment, is recalling approximately 40,948 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The problem was discovered through routine FSIS monitoring which confirmed a positive result for E.coli O157:H7. FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products. E. coli O157:H7 is a bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration, and in the most severe cases, kidney failure.  The very young, seniors and persons with weak immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.  Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.
 
The following products are subject to recall:
  • 10-pound chubs of “CHUCK FINE GROUND BEEF 80/20,” packed in cases containing eight chubs. 
 
The products subject to recall have a “BEST BEFORE OR FREEZE BY” date of “11/13/11” and “EST. 245C” on the box label. The products were shipped to institutions and distributors in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
 
 
 
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. FSIS advises all consumers to safely prepare their raw meat products, including fresh and frozen, and only consume ground beef that has been cooked to a temperature of 160° F. The only way to confirm that ground beef is cooked to a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria is to use a food thermometer that measures internal temperature. Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at: AskKaren.gov. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day.  
 
Consumers with questions regarding this recall should contact the company at (866) 328-3156. Media with questions regarding the recall should contact the company’s Director of Public Relations, Gary Mickelson at (479) 290-6111.
