Dallas Company Gives Bad Head

Well, it might be a bad head -- a bad cow's head, to be more specific. Because, see, yesterday Dallas City Packing, Inc., located just south of downtown, recalled nearly a million pounds of cattle heads after the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service noticed that the company hadn't completely removed their tonsils. That's a potentially bad thing, since the tonsils have been known to contain Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy -- or, as it's better known, mad cow disease. Problem is, some of those noggins shipped in February of '07 -- or several plates of barbacoa ago, dang it. Least it'll give me more room out in the garage. --Robert Wilonsky
