"When you are that big, some things get missed," said Lindsay. "We have four meat cutters here, and we might do 10 beef a week, so nothing gets by us."

While beef products are being pulled from grocery store shelves and kitchen freezers across the continent over fears of potential E. coli poisoning, butcher shops specializing in organic and locally raised and slaughtered beef are seeing a boom in business.
Food contaminated with E. coli may not look or smell spoiled, and consumption may cause serious and potentially life threatening illnesses.
According to the CFIA, the detection of E. coli in slaughter facilities is not uncommon. However, XL Foods was lax in its testing and control procedures, and failed to prevent potentially tainted meat from leaving the plant.
Organic and local beef is more expensive than the factory farmed beef found in grocery stores, about 20 per cent more on average, but the quality and taste is superior, said Lindsay.
Mike Lindsay, manager of Hopcott Premium Meats' butcher shop, says business is booming since the Canadian Food Inspection Agency began recalling products from the XL Foods meat processing plant in Alberta.
CFIA initially announced on Sept. 16 the voluntary recall of raw beef products produced from Alberta's XL Foods Nike Air Max Tavas Triple White Release meat processing planton Aug. 24, 27, 28, 29 and Sept. 5, after tests found E. coli bacteria in samples of raw beef trimmings two weeks earlier.

"We can't compete with their prices, so we compete on quality, and we have them beat," he said. Hopcott's beef is guaranteed hormone and antibiotic free, and takes 18 months to raise as opposed to the nine to 12 months for factory farm cattle. The cattle are even fed local grains, resulting in beef that is graded either AAA, or prime.
After being squeegeed dry, the entire room is sprayed with sanitizer.
Among local retailers believed to have sold the potentially tainted products are Extra Foods, Real Canadian Superstore, IGA, Cooper's Foods, Safeway, Save On Foods, and Thrifty Foods, with most retailers offering refunds for customers with proof of purchase.
