May Herb Stevens make a swift and full recovery. It's scary to think that 8 have died from eating something that's supposed to be healthy. Furthermore, its scary that the FDA whose job it is to prevent such outbreaks has been helpless against them. The very best the FDA has been able to do is order a recall. The whole point of the 2011 Food Safety and Modernization Act was to grant the FDA the regulatory power to keep food safe. Instead the FDA has spent more time attacking dietary supplements and energy drinks. Now 8 are dead, 55 are sick and countless more could be considering listeria can linger for 2 months without showing symptoms. Let's hope this is the last of it.
