Unintended Consequences: E-Coli Poisoning


A new study of the 2009 food poisoning epidemic concludes that consumers should not eat uncooked pre-packaged cookie dough and that manufacturers might want to reformulate raw cookie dough to make it safe to eat.

So our question is whether the food police’s pressure on the food industry to remove preservatives from processed food is making that food unnecessarily risky?

As Steve Milloy pointed out in “False Alarm: A Report on the Center for Science in the Public Interest, 1971-2006,” the food police launched the food preservative scare, which was subsequently exploited by the so-called “organic” or “natural” foods industry until it was was co-opted by the conventional food industry.

No preservatives, eh?

IIRC, salt is a preservative, too.  Wonder if the Moochie/Bloomberg gang has any idea what de-salting foods could do to the population.  (As if they cared.)
