Please read and act

Please read this post about food safety by Marion Nestle, and the two related articles she mentions from the New York Times and the Washington Post, then contact your elected officials. It is a crime that big food corporations are not being held responsible for their products. From Nestle's article:

"[T]he most chilling part of the Times investigation had to do with the lack of testing for dangerous pathogens. No meat packing company wants to test. Why not? They know the animals coming into the plant are contaminated. They know that tests would come up positive. They know that if they find pathogens, they have to recall the meat."

You can find your House representatives here, and your Senators here.

Perhaps, if enough people express outrage, just maybe something can be done.
