Massive recall hits Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Walmart, more over listeria and salmonella scare

At the end of the article there is a list of the states involved in this recall.

I think it is wise to avoid prepared food items. There seems to be so many ways for them to be contaminated.

It is not a reason for me. I buy organic fruits and veggies at WF every week. I also buy good quality ground beef, Icelandic yogurt, low sodium chicken broth, sunflower and pumpkin seeds and a few other things. But I tend to stay away from prepared salads and other mixed dishes I would normally eat raw.

When I eat an apple, I want to know that I am not also eating pesticide residues.

I really am glad I make all our food. Not that heads of lettuce and other ingredients couldn't be contaminated too.

Because NO other retailers have ever had similar occurrences?

It could happen to any food distribution source. Unless you've got a plot of land you're living exclusively from there is always a risk of somewhere in the supply chain getting contaminated food. These chains probably sell produce to hundreds of millions of people in a year, take a realistic look at risk.

very good point...…. 40 years ago 90% of the food dollar was prepared in the home.....today its 40-60% depending on demographics

all these meals consumed every day …. overall we have a safe food supply considering ...whats consumed..

my stores sell over 30 million dollars of meat and deli items per year an (knock on wood) we havent had one instance/problem..we do a ton of meals to go but we have extensive training programs and sanitation certifications

What is hitting TJ's and W Foods is a problem that has affected every single sector of food distribution from supermarkets to restaurant distributors.

So I take it you raise your own crops and food animals?
