UPDATE: (Salmonella outbreak egg recall)

UPDATE: (Salmonella outbreak egg recall) I received a call this afternoon Monday 8/23/2010, from an automated message telling me that they have a record of my buying Cal Egg Brand eggs from Cosco in a five dozen pack. These are now subject to recall and any unused eggs should be returned to the store for a refund.

First: do they keep track of everything I buy? Second: That was over a month ago and the eggs have all been consumed. Third: Cal Egg was not on the recall list so what other companies have managed to keep their names off the list? Fourth: How can they keep track of my purchases but not supervise healthy standards in our nations food production. I remember a beef recall or was it tomato's, or maybe lettuce....wait it was all three. All of the recalls were on products that were shipped to stores at least a month before the recall and were most likely already consumed. What the hell is going on with our food supply? Pay attention brothers and sisters this shit is about to get really real, really fast and it will hit everyone close to home.

UPDATE: I have added a link on the left to the CDC so you can keep up to date on the latest recall information to protect yourself from the mismanagement of our national food production and distribution networks.


  1. Norseman you have only half the news. I am on a local health board in my town and only about half of the recalls make the news. There are food recalls weekly.

    My suggestion is to buy locally produced foods whenever possible, even if they are a few cents higher than the national brands. Raise your own when you can, and when you can't, then make friends with those who do and find something they need and fill that void for them. Trade is great! Cash sucks! Especially these devalued green backs.

    I love your posts, keep-up the good work.

  2. It is unfortunate but what you say is absoutely true. There is currently a deli meat recall from WalMart as well. If I were to only blog about current recalls I would never run out of topics to discuss.

    Trade and barter is a much better way to go but im afraid that the supply could never keep up with the demand. better to just produce your own when you can.

    Thanks for the comment Ken,
