Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Tainted Peanuts and Other Food Recalls

The Atlanta Journal Constitution is following the Blakely, Georgia peanut recall debacle.

Read the article and your stomach will turn as this latest peanut salmonella outbreak could’ve been avoided

— if the FDA actually went to the plant to follow up on metal shards that were in a batch of peanuts rejected by Canada

— if the FDA followed up on Georgia’s health inspections

— if Georgia’s health inspections followed up on their own inspections

— if the FDA followed up on ConAgra’s peanut butter salmonella outbreak a few years ago.

I hope the other Peanut Corporation of  America plants are also being investigated!

Thank goodness Obama is trying to make the FDA more accountable. I hope it happpens.
