LEARN [2] Food Security-USA Food Safety and Inspection Service

Here in the USA, it may not always be hunger that we face in our Food Security. It may be that pathogens have been allowed to enter the production process and then those foods are distributed on the market to the Public or Wh***sale vendors.

For instance, on March 2, 2010, a food recall was posted on the United States Department of Agriculture's branch website, the Food Safety and Inspection Service. The short version of the recall read "Randolph Packing Co. Inc., an Asheboro, N.C. establishment, is recalling approximately 96,000 pounds of beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today." Further study revealed that the beef was wh***saled to multiple states.

This recall concerned me more than many of the others due to the fact that I live in North Carolina, where the firm that distributed the pathogenic impacted beef.

1. Where was this beef delivered within each state?

2. Had people been reported with the symptoms of E. coli O 157:H7 exposure?

3. How was this detected in those people?

3. How were they to be treated?

4. How will the recalled and undelivered remainder be treated/disposed of?

We are lucky living here in the USA, where food security is being watched and controlled. If you would like to subscribe to these recalls, be sure to visit the site linked above and sign up. It is up to us to utilize the resources provided by our government in order to prepare healthy and safe meals for our household members. Be In Good Health.

that's a really good point, i think knowing where your food comes from is very important

Thanks so much for linking to the Food Safety site, Laura! I was unaware that you could sign up for updates from them. You're right, we are lucky that our government looks out for these things. I would be interested to know what kind of farming practices Randolf uses...

Cian, I think you make a good point that it is critically important to know where our food comes from. In my experience this is something often taken for granted in the US!

World Trade Organization "goes public on farm trade concerns".
All our talk about Farming and the Global food supplies has come to the attention of the world trade organization. Enough, so that we will have open committee outcomes available for anyone interested enough to sign up for that news. See the link above.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
