Has nobody heard of the e.coli controlling cattle vaccine called Econiche, which reduces the incidence of e.coli by up to 98%?

This vaccine is approved and used in Canada. It is manufactured by Bioniche Life Sciences, Ontario, Canada.

Sandy, Officials are saying that it is most likely that the 80 some odd people that have contracted e-coli at the fair more than likely got it after petting animals and did not get it from eating. So again another response from someone that shows their knowledge and speaks from an educated view to make a point.

So saying that Tim is right is saying that his statement "Newman you are F...stupid!" you agree with.

Congratulations, you are an understanding, outstanding individual and I commend you on showing just how knowledgeable you are. You are definitely a citified high class person who would never "eat" at the fair.
