This is why I try to avoid, or at least limit, my meat consumption.
The president of a slaughterhouse at the heart of the largest meat recall denied under oath on Wednesday, but then grudgingly admitted, that his company had apparently introduced sick cows into the hamburger supply.

Seriously, who are you supposed to trust when it comes to food safety? There were over 50 recalls last year alone. Here are some links to sites that list recalls:
Recalls.gov– One stop shop for recall info from FDA, CPSC, USDA, and others
What’s On Your Plate – great blog listing food and cosmetic recalls
- ConsumerAffairs.com – Consumer Safety News
The Seattle Post Intelligencer has an article on how harmful pesticides are found in everyday foods we eat. It says organic fruits and vegetables have little or no pesticides.
This, on top of the perchlorate [rocket-fuel] contamination in tap water, makes me wonder what exactly is safe to feed our children.
Another good reason to switch to organic food. Problem is cost. It’s always more expensive. For me, I don’t care too much, but when it comes to my kid, we go organics as much as we can.
