Well it’s been exactly 2 years since my last update, and very little has changed. I could have written the post below this one today!
Salmonella in pre-packaged food continues to be a concern. I’m pretty sure I could google this every week (at least) and a new result would pop up. VERY reassuring.
Two years ago, I mentioned frozen berries had been found to be contaminated with Hepatitis A. A good explanation of how that could happen is here. Basically, people who don’t wash their hands or a contaminated water supply can cause these kinds of disasters to occur. On a personal note, I eat frozen berries ALL THE TIME. I like living on the edge though. Isn’t it exciting to consider for a second the food you are about to eat could have a virus or bacteria lurking and waiting to leech on to your insides?
Finally, (for today at least), and just in time for summer, 13.5 tons of beef have been recalled for possible E. Coli contamination.
Happy summer eating everyone!
