If you're not familiar, then the USDA issued a class I recall for 8.7 million pounds of beef distributed to 16 states. Of course, Oregon (my state) got affected. And I'm wondering if I should honestly perceive this as a threat?

I purchased a single peporoni stick there a couple weeks back... If it so happened that was the infected beef.... I'll drop dead in a decade or so.

USDA didn't specify what was wrong with the beef. But logic dictates it was BSE (mad cow)

So... We're all going to die in about 7-10 years... I'm very worried.

I have anxiety... So I'm not doing so well...

Can anyone enlighten this situation for me? Truthfully...

Instead of worrying if you ate tainted meat, take care of the real killer that lays within. Your high anxiety. Get some help to calm your nerves.

Health is a bigger concern then anxiety. I'm still trying to see if this is a valid threat.

High anxiety IS bad for your health. So, if you worry about your health, take care of the health issue you DO have, verses something that is a very long shot of having.

I think your going to get a better answer from somewhere other then XDA. Have a look here they have a list of the products and a pdf file of stores by states. Distribution List PDF

Good luck!

One could always elect to go vegan and never be burdened by the negative health issues concerning consuming dead animal flesh or their secretions again. Here are a couple of the many many sources of information to better understand the relationship between humans' needless use and abuse of animals and our (and the planet's) health:
