Here we go again! Tainted food being released to the public, then recalled after it has a chance to make thousands sick, or kill them!
I'm disgusted with wondering if the food I buy in the market is going to kill me, or make me sick!
Is the FDA not doing its job during inspection? Or, is it a conspiracy to kill some off of the over-populated areas, then covering their tracks by
coming back (after people have died, or become sick), and saying, "Oh, my bad! We need that meat recalled."
They, TPB, could also be in "cahoots" with the medical industry to send some "business" their way.
Nothing, and I mean NOTHING would surprise me these days!
