If no food is safe from contamination it simply shows that the high paxes you pay to the FDA are for naught. The FDA can't police every farm, this much is true. However, if these checks, that are at the core of FDA regulation are not fail-safe when enforced what's the point at all. The FDA even has a contamination guidebook known as the FDA Defects Handbook which specifies the levels of contamination allowed in your food. They even have allowances for fecal matter which is by no coincidence one of the largest causes of listeria. http://eng.am/qbfYkY
