60 Minutes did a story years ago about rewashing and redating eggs.
After that, lots of people started searching out those that raise healthy foods.
Buy from a farmer you trust, better yet, grow your own.

I wish I could grow/raise more of my own food just for QC purposes, but I can't. I just don't have the room or the time. I have to buy. What I wouldn't give to work with a farmer and a trusted butcher to prepare a whole animal, package it, prepare it for cooking, and freeze/dehydrate/smoke/pressure can the whole thing.

I really should see if I can find an arrangement like that.

Get on Local Harvest, Eat Wild, or APPPA and find a producer near you.
Most small producers would be glad for you to come help with the processing or production of the food you would purchase from them. You would get to see how it is raised and processed.

“This is how people do their business,” says Shelke.

I don't know what is going on with the FDA, if its cuts or what, but I'm getting out of purchasing food and REALLY focusing on getting my gardening going and getting off the food grid. Why would anyone want to eat toxic, bug laden food at higher and higher prices?

I don't know where you live but we live in a VERY suburban area and there are a lot of farms around here offering sales of half a cow. Farms that will let you come and pick food (you can do it on the weekends) And even though a lot of people HERE spend a good deal of time preparing their food you can freeze stuff in plastic and be just as effective. Rather than taking a whole day cooking jelly and canning, I've been canning a jelly from fresh strawberries for the last month - just one can at a time. The kids love it and it SERIOUSLY takes me less time to make the jelly than it does to make dinner.

You can make anything fit into your lifestyle.

It was never theidea of "pink slime" that bothered me, because it is just finely ground meat. It was the idea that they had to treat it with ammonia to make it safe! YUCK! The FDA and I have VERY different ideas of what is safe food!!!!!!!!!!!

I couldn't read it. Half the weird sites people link to around here I get error or warning messages on. Even so assuming it's true I am sure we're talking about processed and prepackaged foods, which you shouldn't be eating anyway.

Also after the Food Lion meat bleaching story. Funny the people of NC seem to want bleached out dated meat as they ruled against CBS and gave Food Lion civil suit award for tarnishing the image of Food Lion. After that 60 min resorted to airing 60 min of silly each week.
