Rant about Food Safety
Good Morning all, I thought I wasn't going to post this morning because of vet appt. Turns out they can't see him until 1pm. A couple of weeks ago when they had the chicken recall, I went to my store and saw the bad codes. So I told the meat person you have bad codes. He hemmed and hawed and said some BS about it not being the dates that were bad. I said I'm not buying them, you never know. Well, he told me yesterday 2 hours after I left they got the call to pull the meat. I am so glad I did not buy them. Part of my time in the military was spent as a food inspector and when you have a recall no matter what dates, if codes match you pull it. When I was in college before the ms set in and I was headed for work with the CDC, I had the pleasure of having dinner with several public health officers from the CDC. They said the greatest threat to people's health was not bird flu but Food Borne Illness. I can believe it with stupidity like this coming out of the stores. What do you think about this going on?
