FOOD, Inc. The Poisoning of America (Part 2)

FOOD, Inc. The Poisoning of America (Part 2)

Yesterday I recommended that each of you view a new documentary titled “FOOD, Inc.” about how the American food industry has been taken over by what I regard as a group of professional criminals that do not have the interests of the American people at heart. Watch this documentary, and you will understand why I am sending this e-mail.

One of the things covered in the “FOOD, Inc.” documentary is the increasing number of E.coli outbreaks throughout America due to the consumption of contaminated meat. It predicted many, many more such outbreaks. Well, guess what? They did not have to wait long.

Please read the following:

November 2, 2009. Fairbank Farms, an Ashville, NY, establishment is recalling approximately 545,699 pounds of fresh ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.

Several state health departments, the CDC, and the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service are investigating this multi-state outbreak, for which a notice of recall was issued on October 31, 2009. The cluster of illnesses reported includes twenty-eight persons from 12 states infected with matching strains of E. coli O157:H7. The number of ill persons identified in each state is as follows: California (1), Connecticut (4), Massachusetts (8), Maryland (1), Maine (2), Minnesota (1), New Hampshire (4), New Jersey (1), New York (1), Pennsylvania (2), South Dakota (2), and Vermont (1).

Some of the ground beef was sold at Trader Joe’s, Price Chopper, Lancaster, Wild Harvest, Shaw’s, BJ’s, Ford Brothers and Giant stores in packages that carried the number “EST. 492” on the label. Most of the beef packages in the recall bear the establishment number “Est. 492” inside the USDA mark of inspection and have identifying package dates of “091509” or “091609.” Consumers are urged to check their refrigerators and freezers for beef products produced by this firm and purchased on or after September 15, 2009 and discard or return the recalled beef products to the place of purchase for a refund. Customers with questions about the source of a package of beef should contact the place where they purchased it.
