    Well, there are two choices here; either continue the cuts in big government, take your chances with less inspection, or hire more inspectors to insure a safer market place.

    The solution to this craziness is to start eating at home (NO FAST FOOD) and a vegetarian menu. It's easier and cheaper and it will get AMERICA HEALTHY AGAIN! Duh

    I think that Larry White is right. How do you feel about adding a little drug tinged HORSE MEAT to this mix. The USDA and the Whitehouse have asked that they not have to budget money for inspection of Horse Meat but Slaughterhouse SUE is begging them to change their minds. Let your Legislators know that none of your tax dollars should be used to inspect Horse Meat.

    I'm glad my name is Amanda and not Manda, haha, jk but this sounds pretty bad! I hope no one gets sick!

    Ask Obamao why he's cutting food inspectors while giving millions of dollars to Syrian rebels with ties to Al Qaeda.

    Cuts in Big Government? You mean like Parties with Justin Timberlake and a Vacation per month.

    Listeria is not an uncommon bacterial problem. Meat is suseptable to Listeria contamination because it is refrigerated and not pasteurized. Cooking any food to 160 degrees for 2 miutes will kill Listeria. Listeria is found in many kitchens and is a contaminant when sanitation is not done on all containers, serving and working utensils, shipping and handling containers and of course, workers hands and clothing. The best way to protect yourself from Listeria bacteria is to cook food at least 2 minutes to 160 degrees, clean all food handling areas, serving utensils and containers. Even meat with Listeria can be cooked well and eaten without harm. It is exposure to uncooked food that is the problem.

    Oh really? Didn't people get sick by eating tainted spinach and other vegetables recently? You can stick to your rabbit food but the rest of us humans are omnivores, that's how we were biologically programmed.

    Obviously several people on here need to eat some meat raw so their tired blame game goes away. Sick of hearing the hick version of the world. Get some teeth you back hills tards.

    I microwave (45 secs) all meat including lunch meat too before eating or cooking them…
    The high freq RF energy kills most of that bad bacterial thus, making it safer to consume…

    Cutting back on what, exactly? Just because you make a statement dosen't make it so.

    @Elizabeth….my young daughter is a vegetarian. I've noticed the weight loss she's had since taking meat out of her diet. It really is amazing, and as much as I would like to be able to eat, as Alex called it…""rabbit food…" and lose weight due to that type of a diet, I just cannot sustain myself on lettuce, spinach leaves, veggies and the like. I've tried, and I'm literally starving after less than two hours. I've got to have some sort of meat, even if it's only ground beef with my pasta, milk and cheese, etc. Going vegan is OK for some, but most of us really are meat eaters.

    Me either. I don't eat a lot of meat, but every once in awhile that Steak really kicks in and I feel better. Too much of anything is not good for you, but even cave dwellers ate meat!

    Sherri Kowalski Vegan is not the same as Vegetarian at all. Vegan means no animal by-products. If you're Vegetarian you might still be eating dairy such as eggs which a Vegan would never consider doing. Not trying to be rude at all, I just wanted to clarify that :) I am a Pescatarian which means I do not eat poultry or red meats (which is the absolute worst for you) I only eat a Vegetarian menu with occasional seafood like salmon or tilapia. I also don't go around shoving my diet in other people's faces. I never understood why people seem to disrespect Vegetarians. If your daughter ever experiences that, just tell her to remind those people to mind their own business and worry about themselves :) She can take care of herself and eat what she wants! More power to her!

    Alex Hartounian Why does it seem to bother you so much that some people choose to eat a certain way and live a healthier lifestyle? It's true that things like lettuce and spinach have also been culprits of food recalls–that's what you get for buying from a huge corporation who uses poor and low standards in their manufacturing practices. Quite a few Vegetarians/Vegans end up shopping at places like Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, or local co-ops…Those places have either never had any issues or they are slim to none and that is a fact. There is absolutely no harm done if someone chooses to nix meat from their diet. If you look at history, several societies used to be strictly herbivores because that's all they had access to. Women are biologically programmed to reproduce but I have no intention of making use of that because I am choosing a career over kids. That also does no harm to anyone seeing as how we are overpopulated ;)

    Anybody else wondering what the heck tasso-tasso is? (And thank god, none of those brands are sold where I live. I prefer to cook my own food, anyway.)

  19. Vanessa Forbes Milliman

    Yeah there have been major recalls on lettuce, tomatoes and spinach in the past 2-3 years for salamanella, so it doesn't matter what you eat these days everything has a risk
