Someone at the Food and Drug Administration or at the Department of Agriculture Was Asleep at the Switch

This new worry started with food for our dogs and cats. It quickly escalated to chicken and pork products meant for our tables. And there's good reason for this new concern.

The FDA just leads to a false sense of security. "It's still buyer be ware." Companies can still kill and make a big profit even if they get caught! The FDA is a federally funded advertisement for food, drugs and medical care. People need to be educated not told what to do. Statistics mean nothing without knowledge of how they are gathered.

"The pet chow also was used as chicken feed in at least --- 38 farms in Indiana --- and as pig food in --- half-a-dozen neighboring states --- . " So what do have in place to know where these contaminants went to? The generalities (spaced apart in the quote above) and no answer as to where that eventual food went is what bothers me. Our right to know where our food came from, what is in it, how was it created, grown, tended, handled, etc until it reaches us, and our choice as to if we want to buy it. If we are kept in the dark, then how can proper change and correction ever happen? If the grocery chains were to lose their business from allowing harmful food practices to remain a part of their choice in products to sell, perhaps these would exert their cooperative corporate strength to fight for themselves and their customers.
