Go see this movie folks, and you will have some disturbing answers to the current state of madness in our food industry. This is a powerful and thought provoking film that should be seen by everyone who eats. Did you know that nothing has legally changed for manufacturers responsible for some of the first e coli deaths over 7 years ago? Or that the FDA does NOT have the authority to shut down a manufacturing facility?
Also from today's Los Angeles Times on our own local beef recall:
A Fresno-based beef company is recalling hundreds of thousands of ground beef products because of concerns it may be linked to an outbreak of salmonella.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says Beef Packers Inc. is recalling 825,769 pounds of ground beef produced between June 5, 2009 through June 23.
The recall announced today says the beef products bear the establishment number "EST. 31913" printed on case code labels.
The beef was distributed to retail distribution centers in Arizona, California, Colorado and Utah.
The USDA says because the beef was repackaged under different retail names, consumers should check with the store they bought beef from to determine if they've purchased any recalled beef.
