A run-of-the-mill story, really - people consumng some animal product that has feces in it and getting violently ill - but I wanted to take the moment to note the way this is all explained and described. A quick key:
"campylobacter" = disease caused by feces
"to kill bacteria" = to kill bacteria from feces
"listeria, e.coli, salmonella" etc. = diseases caused by feces
"Pasteurize" = cook feces
"Irradiate" = cook feces
It just amuses me, in a darkly comic way, how many words we have for feces in our food. We're like the eskimos and snow. Only this ain't snow, folks.
