Can anyone say ECOLI Posioning?
Can anyone say LAWSUIT?

Can anyone say (and lawyers might) that this was an attempt to do great bodily harm to many people.

The people who shipped these items should be held accountable..let us hope they can find them.

It was probably one of those pickup trucks one sees all the time on the road, selling door to door. That'd be my idea.

Were the drivers of middle-eastern descent? Doesn't make sense at all. Since when did food suppliers deliver food in a rental truck? I remember hearing reports a while back about terrorists possibly getting to our food source. Could this have been an attempt?

When are we going to reliaze that there are unscrupulous people out there willing to put American Health at risk for a fast buck. The State Police should be commended for a job well done in this case.

Ok.. Here is another little tid-bit to consider, how did the meat of 200# get by USDA Inspection, was it boot-legged out of a unsanitary processing plant, or even worse someones garage>? These are things that we should as AMERICANS be concerned "really CONCERNED" about. All too often we take many things of everyday life for granted.

Because your ISP (internet service provider)is routed through Grand Rapids at this moment.'topix' has no idea where you live.
Your location can even change depending on how busy lines are.
