Govt at work. Food Safety (joke!) Inspection Service in the U.S. Dept of Agriculture and FDA doing a great job hey? FIVE months AFTER everyone is sick or dies......they tell us it's bad---to not eat it! Really?!?!? WHY do we have a Safety Inspection Dept anyway? Why not let the guinea pigs (that would be us, the people) tell you what makes us ill; we are anyway!
Our food is becoming LESS safe not safer. What gives? Sick of supporting a dept that is not doing what it's supposed to do. And Obama told us he'd be cutting employees in that dept and our food would be less safe. I fail to see what the difference would be because no one finds out until it's too late anyway!
