Beef panties

This typo in the lead of a Reuters story must be shared (thanks, Robin):
WASHINGTON, Nov 1 (Reuters) - Quaker Maid Meats Inc. on Tuesday said it would voluntarily recall 94,400 pounds of frozen ground beef panties that may be contaminated with E. coli.
The link is here. I would have guessed they'd fix this error online, but the story is already three days old.

If that link disappears, you can find plenty of reprints.

UPDATE: Regret the Error has screen grabs of several news orgs that ran the piece unedited, including the New York Times and ABC News.
