  1. What is really going on with food and meat these days? It seems like just yesterday we had the ground beef recall, and now this? How are the foriegn objects getting in there anyways? Don't he have special machines that make them? I'm seriously thinking about becoming a vegaterian with all the crap that is going around and all the un-answered questions.

  2. Hi CuRiOuS!

    Thanks for visiting. We seem to go through waves of these things. But I do have the feeling that it's getting worse. These companies never seem to learn from their own – or other's – mistakes.

    As for becoming a vegetarian, don't forget the elephant-sized outbreak this year was due to tomatoes, jalapeño peppers and/or serrano peppers.
