That's the war on E.Coli, salmonella, listeria, and the other foodborne illness that all originate in animal feces. But you know we're finally gonna wrap this up and declare victory soon, because today the USDA announced a brand-new, improved plan for inspecting meat & poultry plants: Actually inspect them! Unless, of course, they haven't been recall fodder lately, in which case - fuggeddaboudit! There's no way fatal contamination could emerge from such a plant.

In short, well into the 21st century now, our food safety system is still trying to catch up with the 20th and seems to have no idea how to do so.
