This is getting out of control - all these illnesses and outbreaks - I can only believe that the government is behind a majority of it.

This seems to be an ongoing problem here now which never was heard of happening when I was growing up. Unacceptable!

I agree with Val R. this happens far too often to be a coincidence.

Ahhh...but remember that the last four major outbreaks of food poisoning ~ from lettuce and spinach contaminated with E. coli and listeria ~ three in the U.S. and one in Canada were traced back to organic farm products. And that's been in just the past couple years.
