Reuters article.


(Reuters) - California-based True Leaf Farms is recalling 90 cartons of chopped romaine lettuce as it may be contaminated with listeria, though no related illnesses have been reported.


As you may know, I recently posted a Listeria outbreak from cantaloupe. Now they're recalling lettuce.

Here is the link to the other Listeria thread.

I wonder if they'll begin recalling other items as well, such as apples. Only time will tell.

The more I hear about Listeria, it sounds just like radiation poisoning but then again, what do I know ? I'm not a doctor.

I read that and here's a link that explains radiation poisoning.

Interesting correlation Heartisblack.

Though the symptoms for both are rather broad and the same; nausea, fever, diarrhea, etc.

I could expect that any manifestation of nuclear radiation sickness be down played by the media. The proof of that is they no longer mention nary a peep of any contamination on the west coast in any news reports. What does the news media on the east coast say about the rads on the west coast?

Out of sight, out of mind...

Anyone remember the plot line in Close Encounters when they wanted to clear the region around The Devils Tower so there would be no witnesses?

The Gov. created a misinformation story about nerve gas and evacuated everybody.

I am sure that if it was radiation poisoning they would call it something else. Something similar, something that would get us to stop eating fruits and vegetables that collect the "disease" on their "surface".

As events unfold another good indicator would be some weird disease in milk.

By the way, polio has a vaccine. I would be more worried if they announced a dozen middle eastern men were wandering our cities infected with a weaponised strain of Small Pox. Now that would be terrifying.

The big difference is the "hair falling out" bit.
Dunno...

Publix brand spinach dip is now being recalled because of listeria.

The article says that no illnesses have been reported, but they're taking special precautions.

So they announce the recall of the Lettuce ... that expired on 9/29/11. Most of it has been eaten by now, and any damage has been done. Why did it take 2 weeks to test the batch for contaminants? Would have been helpful BEFORE it reached the public for consumption.

Yeah, which I haven't heard as of yet in the Listeria outbreaks.
