seems i am hearing more and more of these sorts of stories, “Agribusiness monster Cargill is recalling 1 million pounds of beef that may be contaminated with E. coli.” makes me wants to go back to my vegetarian ways. didn’t i read about frozen pizza being recalled as well? lead in haloween costume teeth, my g*d, is nothing sacred? sometimes those people who buy 100 acres in the ozarks and build a fence around themselves make a lot of sense…..
maybe the key to all these stories is “agribusiness monster.” that’s how the e. coli got in the spinach a few months ago. small and local seems to be the way to go. buy your kiddie’s toys from someone you know, get your meat (if you must eat meat) from a local farm. and if there isn’t a local farm, move to someplace where there is.
pardon my soapbox.
