    It appears that our food sources need more and better inspection and regulation requirements, not less.

    I think we need to change our focus to finding out whats different about the recto-anal junction of super shedders and of course lowering the density of feed lots and processing plants'



    I hate it when so many news outlets are all about the sensataional news of a recall , even pointing fingers to the farm but fail to provide any of the recall details
    Eggs and egg dishes consumed at restaurants appear to account for 65 percent of the illnesses so far. The age range of the victims is 5 to 90 years , with55 percent being males.
    Cal-Maine Foods got caught up in the recall because it purchased “one load” or 23,400 dozen eggs from Rose Acre Farms for repackaging, a typical food industry practice. Those “potentially affected eggs” were distributed in Florida and included:
    Product Description UPC Lot Number Best By
    PUBLIX GRADE A extra large EGGS 18PK 0 41415 00966 0 P1359D 048A

    The Rose Acre Farms egg recall is the largest since 2010 when two Iowa egg farms responsible for a nationwide Salmonella outbreak called back 550 million table eggs.

    Do not eat any lettuces unless you have grown it yourself! ...or know for absolute certain it hasn't come from Arizona.

    Wow that is gonna hurt the industry ! We need to get behind using this old school method that has proven reliable https://www.fda.gov/food/resourcesfo.../ucm261680.htm

    Food Irradiation: What You Need to Know

    Irradiation does not make foods radioactive, compromise nutritional quality, or noticeably change the taste, texture, or appearance of food. In fact, any changes made by irradiation are so minimal that it is not easy to tell if a food has been irradiated.
    Food irradiation (the application of ionizing radiation to food) is a technology that improves the safety and extends the shelf life of foods by reducing or eliminating microorganisms and insects. Like pasteurizing milk and canning fruits and vegetables, irradiation can make food safer for the consumer. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for regulating the sources of radiation that are used to irradiate food. The FDA approves a source of radiation for use on foods only after it has determined that irradiating the food is safe.

    Why Irradiate Food?

    Irradiation can serve many purposes.

    • Prevention of Foodborne Illness – to effectively eliminate organisms that cause foodborne illness, such as Salmonella and Escherichia coli (E. coli).
    • Preservation – to destroy or inactivate organisms that cause spoilage and decomposition and extend the shelf life of foods.
    • Control of Insects – to destroy insects in or on tropical fruits imported into the United States. Irradiation also decreases the need for other pest-control practices that may harm the fruit.
    • Delay of Sprouting and Ripening – to inhibit sprouting (e.g., potatoes) and delay ripening of fruit to increase longevity.
    • Sterilization – irradiation can be used to sterilize foods, which can then be stored for years without refrigeration. Sterilized foods are useful in hospitals for patients with severely impaired immune systems, such as patients with AIDS or undergoing chemotherapy. Foods that are sterilized by irradiation are exposed to substantially higher levels of treatment than those approved for general use.

    Did you know?

    National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) astronauts eat meat that has been sterilized by irradiation to avoid getting foodborne illnesses when they fly in space.
    How Is Food Irradiated?

    There are three sources of radiation approved for use on foods.

    • Gamma rays are emitted from radioactive forms of the element cobalt (Cobalt 60) or of the element cesium (Cesium 137). Gamma radiation is used routinely to sterilize medical, dental, and household products and is also used for the radiation treatment of cancer.
    • X-rays are produced by reflecting a high-energy stream of electrons off a target substance (usually one of the heavy metals) into food. X-rays are also widely used in medicine and industry to produce images of internal structures.
    • Electron beam (or e-beam) is similar to X-rays and is a stream of high-energy electrons propelled from an electron accelerator into food.


    Is Irradiated Food Safe to Eat?

    The FDA has evaluated the safety of irradiated food for more than 30 years and has found the process to be safe. The World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) have also endorsed the safety of irradiated food.
    The FDA has approved a variety of foods for irradiation in the United States including:

    • Beef and Pork
    • Crustaceans (e.g., lobster, shrimp, and crab)
    • Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
    • Lettuce and Spinach
    • Poultry
    • Seeds for Sprouting (e.g., for alfalfa sprouts)
    • Shell Eggs
    • Shellfish - Molluscan
      (e.g., oysters, clams, mussels, and scallops)
    • Spices and Seasonings


    How Will I Know if My Food Has Been Irradiated?

    The FDA requires that irradiated foods bear the international symbol for irradiation. Look for the Radura symbol along with the statement “Treated with radiation” or “Treated by irradiation” on the food label. Bulk foods, such as fruits and vegetables, are required to be individually labeled or to have a label next to the sale container. The FDA does not require that individual ingredients in multi-ingredient foods (e.g., spices) be labeled. It is important to remember that irradiation is not a replacement for proper food handling practices by producers, processors, and consumers. Irradiated foods need to be stored, handled, and cooked in the same way as non-irradiated foods, because they could still become contaminated with disease-causing organisms after irradiation if the rules of basic food safety are not followed.
