Put down the frozen meatball, now… dirtbag. The New Jersey-based company Buona Vita Inc. has just recalled over 300,000 death-meatballs that are apparently spiked with listeria. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service made the discovery late last week, describing the potential health risk as “high.”
Although there have been no meatball-related deaths or illnesses reported yet, listeria is not your average frozen meatball bacteria, as it offed more than 30 people last year after tainted cantaloupe was sold to the public.
Buona Vita Inc also had to recall their chicken and beef patties, and loafs of chicken, which leads us to our next point. Why are you eating frozen meatballs, anyway? They taste awful and look more like Dunkin’ Donuts’ munchkins than something that once made up a living, breathing thing. Please, invest in some ground beef and ward off death for another few months.
