FOOD AS FILTH: ANOTHER OUTBREAK FROM SH*T IN FOOD
UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE:
"Food Safety & Inspection Service: Fact sheets"
"Salmonella Questions and Answers"
YOUR CORPORATE GOVERNMENT AT WORK:
PUTTING SH*T ON YOUR TABLE EVERY DAY
Where's That "Change," Obama? SH*T!
Cantaloupes. Bell peppers. Spinach. Lettuce. Tomatoes. Jalapenas. Peanuts. Pistachios. Sprouts. Every month or two, another item in our food supply turns up with human or animal feces in it or on it, in massive quantities, all over the country. We don't hear about it until months after the initial outbreaks. Because the priority is to protect profits, not people. Because the corporations own our government, lock, stock & barrel. And if that means you have to eat a little sh*t, then you'll just have to eat a little sh*t. If you die, you die.
Doesn't seem like food experts should have that much trouble telling sh*t from food. Do they really need someone to remind them that sh*t is not food, sh*t is poison?
Apparently, they do. But Republicans and Blue Dog Democrats, i.e. Lite Republicans, have been taking money from "agribusiness" for years, in exchange for letting them put sh*t in our food. There are virtually no inspections. Almost nobody is making sure our food is clean and pure today. No one even seems to know where the food is even coming from any more.
Call it "American Roulette." Every time you feed your kids or your elderly parents, your students or your teachers, your friends or your neighbors, your customers or your suppliers, you might be putting actual human or animal feces in their mouths. You might be eating sh*t yourself. You'll just have to chance it. Because, thanks to the conservative "philosophy" of taking money from big business to look the other way, the only way to tell if there is coliform bacteria in your food is to eat it. If you get sick and die, you can thank the Republicans and DINO's, especially those from the farming and food-processing States. If you live and don't get sick, well, that's just luck. Because there is no system to protect you any more.
For that you can thank Richard Nixon, Gerry Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and now Barack Obama. They are all from farming & food-processing States. And they dismantled, watered down or just ignored regulations put in place a hundred years ago to protect the American food supply. They did this for money and power. They did this with the greedy, power-hungry assistance of the United States Congress. You might want to write them and demand that they stop betraying their country. Or you might want to start a move toward socialism and throw them all out of power.
But you don't actually have the right to do that. They'd kill you, lock you up or ruin you somehow. And you don't have the right to clean food and good health, either. So, I guess you'll just have to eat sh*t and die. Or keep gambling with your health and maybe getting lucky, every time you put food in your mouth. Gulp.

"Alfafa sprout warning issued"
This has been going on for over two months. And we're just hearing about this now? WHY???!!! Wouldn't want the shit-suppliers to lose any MONEY!!!
' The Food and Drug Administration is recommending consumers not eat raw alfalfa sprouts until further notice because the popular crunchy greens have been linked to a salmonella saintpaul outbreak in six states. Officials believe infected seeds, sold nationwide, are the source of the outbreak. The warning does not include bean and other types of sprouts. There have been 31 cases of salmonella saintpaul in Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Utah, and West Virginia linked to alfalfa sprouts since mid-March, FDA says. No deaths have been reported. The current outbreak appears to be an extension of an outbreak that sickened more than 100 in February and March in Nebraska, South Dakota, Iowa, Kansas, and Minnesota, officials say. Raw sprouts have been linked to several outbreaks of salmonella over the past two decades, FDA says. Salmonella can cause diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps and usually lasts four to seven days. It is especially dangerous to the elderly, infants and people with impaired immune systems. '

"FDA and CDC Warning: Eat No Sprouts"
Salmonella = shit, folks. Call a spade a spade, you f**king bureaucrats.
' Americans should not eat any raw alfalfa sprouts, or sprout blends containing alfalfa sprouts, until the origins of a salmonella Saintpaul outbreak has been determined, according to the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The do-not-eat warning is most important for the elderly, young children, and those with compromised immune systems, who are at high risk of serious complications from a salmonella infection. So far, 31 people have taken ill since mid-March in Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Utah, and West Virginia, and federal investigators warned that illnesses may be present -- but as yet undiagnosed -- in other states. Federal investigators say the seeds of alfalfa sprouts may be the source of salmonella, since multiple sprout growers in multiple states all appear contaminated. (The widespread outbreak also suggests that growers have failed to adhere to voluntary sanitary guidelines, according to the FDA and CDC, because best practice guidelines call for disinfection with calcium hypochlorite before planting, and routing testing to detect salmonella or E. coli contamination before sprouts reach consumers.) "Because suspect lots of seeds may be sold around the country and may account for a large proportion of the alfalfa seeds currently being used by sprout growers, and cases of illness are spread across multiple states, FDA and CDC are issuing this general advisory (not to eat any alfalfa sprouts)."

"FDA warns of salmonella in sprouts"
Would they "work with" criminals or terrorists in perpetrating their crimes? Or would they just shut them down? Hard to say, These are Feds. They let the World Trade Center get bombed. Twice. And they knew about it in advance. Maybe they were "working with" them.
' "FDA will work with the alfalfa sprout industry to help identify which seeds and alfalfa sprouts are not connected with this contamination, so that this advisory can be changed as quickly as possible." '.
