Why I Did Not Marry and Why I Do Not Eat Peanuts ~By Blond Bombshell
I was recently at a premiere all doll up but very much alone. While I had a handsome Hollywood escort, it simply is not the same. After the premiere I went through an old box of memorabilia in order to refresh my recollection of just why I did not marry my handsome legal fiance. At the bottom of the box, my wedding invitation said it all...
Going a head with a known disaster is almost criminal. If the latest allegation about the knowledge of peanut butter being contaminated with salmonella is true, it is equally criminal in my view.
The maker of peanut butter tainted with salmonella apparently shipped the salmonella apparently sent it out to consumers even though they knew it had tested positive for the bacteria. The FDA apparently confirmed salmonella in a Blakely, Georgia plant. The Peanut Corporation of America's own testing program found strains of salmonella 12 times in 2007 and 2008. When FDA inspectors visited the plant this month, they reported finding more salmonella contamination according to a recent inspection. Inspection report. To see violations look here: Violations.
Most feel that once salmonella is found in a product, the entire production should be destroyed. Apparently that did not happen. That means, some should pay for the people that have been harmed by the tainted product.
Not every peanut manufacturer is to blame. Here is a list of companies not implicated in the recall: http://www.peanutsusa.com/.
In the meantime, if you have peanuts, throw them instead of rice at the next wedding you attend.
