A recall of frozen vegetables and fruit because of Listeria fears has been widened to cover more than 350 different products sold under 42 different brand names, federal officials say.
I have never seen the attraction of "organic" food (almost all foods are organic by definition) although I do believe in the minimal use of pesticides etc. To me, the modern "organic" label seems to be mainly a marketing tool for charging more.
Totally agree. A lot depends on the area. Local produce in Central PA is often technically organic, Manure being the fertilizer of choice, no pesticide, but the farmers won't jump through the Gov'ment hoops to get certification. Food in season is 1/4 the price of Cert. Organic...JJ
I hear you Chef! You're family is fortunate!
In today's rat race world though most households don't fall into that category, at least not on a daily basis.
Why does it seem like all these recalls are a surprise to the food processing companies? Aren't "they" or someone, anyone checking their products before, during and after processing?
How can 47 million pounds of meat and poultry product go out the door and no one knows it's contaminated with Listeria?
