4isteria outbreak traced to meat
processing plant in Western Michigan

ff

MEAT
Continued from Page 1A
of the company's products, said Theresa Herlevsen, executive
-director of communication for Bil Mar's parent company
Lee Corp.
'We were eventually able to determine that one of the
strains found ... was identical to a strain found in one of our
_'litdog packages," Herlevsen said.
-The Bil Mar plant is currently closed while employees
cTean and inspect the facility, Herlevsen said.
w "We are hopeful that we will reopen that plant within two
-eeks,"she said Friday.
Last week a Detroit resident filed a lawsuit against Sara
L ee claiming her daughter got listeriosis from a Bil Mar
product.
Sara Lee spokesperson Jeffrey Smith said he could not
fiment on pending litigation.
Qnce the plant reopens, Smith said, Bil Mar "will be
cotmunicating very actively to consumers through
;advertising" to ensure them that the products are safe to
pu'rhase.
Yn Jan. 22, Thorn Apple Valley recalled millions of pounds
,of eat produced since July 6.
',The contamination was detected by testing in the
-plant and has not been confirmed as the cause of any
-illnesses, said Henry Hubbard, a consultant for the com-
:pany.

"There's no evidence that anything contaminated got
shipped," Hubbard said.
The products named in the recall notice originated
from Thorn Apple Valley's Forrest City, Ark. plant,
which has been out of commission since Dec. 30,
Hubbard said.
Hubbard said cleanliness problems did not contribute to
the presence of listeria in the Forrest City facility.
"It's a fairly new ... state-of-the-art plant," Hubbard said.
"It's squeaky clean."
Listeria occurs naturally in soil and water, Hubbard said,
and "it's impossible to keep it out of anywhere."
The recent number of recalls does not necessarily
indicate more listeria present in meat products, Hubbard
said.
"What you're seeing is the result of more energetic
screening," Hubbard said.
Listeria is most likely to severely affect the elderly and
young children, Hubbard said, and healthy adults may see
only light symptoms.
Hubbard emphasized the consumer's role in protecting
themselves from possible contamination.
"You must cook your hot dogs," Hubbard said. "Cook the
food carefully, that's your last line of defense."
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and
Inspection Service has planned a public meeting in Arlington,
Va., on Wednesday to address concerns and possible solu-
tions to the listeria outbreak.

NOTRE DAME
Continued from Page IA
Malloy said Notre Dame and the Big
Ten have always been closely associat-
ed, and that he hopes those relationships
can continue.
"Our numerous and long-standing
athletic associations with the Big Ten
schools are well known to the public,"
Malloy said.
"It was a group of University of
Michigan students, you may recall,
who first taught Notre Dame students
to play the game of football," Malloy
said.
Malloy thanked the Big East for its
patience, as Notre Dame will maintain
its quasi-affiliation with that confer-
ence.
The football team will remain inde-
pendent and the hockey team will
remain in the Central Collegiate
Hockey Association. The Michigan
hockey team also competes in the
CCHA.
Michigan Athletic Director Tom
Goss said Notre Dame was a good fit
for the Big Ten, and that it was
unfortunate the board voted to end
talks.
With regard to Big Ten expansion,
Goss said the conference should

"Just to go out and add another teant
just does not make sense."
U- Tom Gos
University Athletic Directdr

proceed with caution, looking for
teams that can add value to the con-
ference.
"If you look at Penn State, they
brought value academically and athleti-
cally," Goss said. "Just to go out and
add another team just does not make
sense."
In the specific instance of football, a
12th team would add the possibility of
two separate divisions and a champi-
onship game at the end of the season -
much like in the Southeastern and Big
XII conferences.
But Goss said he is not so excited
about that possibility.
"A lot of people are thinking 12
teams for a playoff," Goss said. "I
don't necessarily support a playoff. It's
an additional game - it's probably
close to our finals time, so academi-
cally it doesn't make sense.
"Yes, there's always more revenue on
the other side - but with 85 scholar-
ships, you're looking at another game
on top of a bowl game, you have

injuries - there's just not enough peo-
ple to get it done," Goss said.
Goss reemphasized that no offer had
officially been made for Notre Dame to
join the Big Ten. But, the conference
did initiate contact earlier in the acade-
mic year.
Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany
said in a statement released Friday that
he doesn't regret the decision to begin
preliminary talks.
"Our decision to initiate contact
with Notre Dame approximately
seven or eight months ago, in retro-
spect, was the right decision'"
Delany said.
"We have had imany meetings over a
long period of time about the value of
expansion," he said. "In the final
analysis, whether the discussions are
with Notre Dame or another institu-
tion, it's really about believing that the
institution would add significantly to
the Big Ten."

Freeman contributed to this report.
