It is hard to pick up a paper today without reading about another food , dogfood, or toothpaste recall. Are we getting better or worse? I think we are getting better and more open about the health risks in out food supply. My concern is not the number of foods recalled but the number of illnesses prevented. We live in a country where fresh produce is available year-round. With this all season availability comes some risk since most will be grown in foreign countries. Rasberries in Jan and grapes in Dec are a luxury that can sometimes carry illness. Should we only buy native produce? As for me, I will continue to enjoy the all season bounty and wash carefully.
