It seems we can’t go a week anymore without seeing another scary food recall on the news. Last week it was hummus and 1.8 million pounds of beef. This week’s food recall is walnuts…not one recall, not two, but three walnut recalls.
DO NOT eat hummus or walnuts before reading about these ongoing food recalls — also avoid the ground beef. I know, I know, I always say that — but this time (in addition to many other good reasons!) it’s an e. coli contamination thing. The week’s food safety issues aren’t just bothering 2-legged diners: if you have canine friends, beware the toxic jerky! So, yes, the week’s news does feature some ickiness. But don’t be scared — there’s also some nifty GMO news, plus research on Paleo diets, cheap food, and obesity. Holy guacamole, but there’s much to report this week!
