Food Contamination is A Growing Public Safety Concern

Comments Off

The last year has seen a dizzying array of food contamination from all the food groups. We’ve had spoiled peanut butter, contaminated egg products, tainted beef, and spoiled canned foods, and contaminated vegetables in our supermarkets and grocery stores. The toxins have ranged from E.coli bacteria to salmonella that have killed at least 3 people, sickened thousands, and touched every state in the country. The number of outbreaks of foodborne illnesses nearly doubled in the time period of 1995-2000. The bad news is that health officials don’t seem to have a handle on how to stem the tide or deal with the problem.
