Am I being alarmist? Because to me, the scariest part isn't that Wampler, aka Pilgrim's Pride, aka Listeria-Laced-Deli-Turkeys-R-Us, is now recalling 27 million pounds of meat, the largest amount EVER recalled in US history... It's not even the fact that the USDA still insists this listeria is NOT the same listeria that's caused 120 illnesses and 20 deaths (that's what they're saying today, anyway)... No, it's that this contamination was found only incidentally, because inspectors were rigorously looking for the other, killer, listeria. So how much other feces-infected meat is slipping by these days when inspectors aren't doing a life-or-death investigation?
