Is Dr. Lundberg saying that sprouts are the culprit? It's has to be hard on the anti-Wal-Mart crowd when Trader Joes also is named in the same sentence! Does the Chico Wal-Mart even sell sprouts?

Walmart doesn't sell sprouts in Chico.7 people and they can't find a link to connect them? They have to have been in the same area at least.

One of the local sandwich shops stopped selling sprouts because of the lack of guarantee that they'd be samonella free.

think it might have something to do with the illegals who are processing our food in the factories?? they are in unclean enviroments and have no concern for the health of those who eat the food they process. Then again what about the containers the procduce is transported from the fields in?? Look at any food transport buckets/boxes in the area fields during harvest and it is all rancid and moldy. look at te ones on highway 70 that sit there all winter and that get filled, with various fruits daily, and when they come back to the fields they are just dropped off and reloaded, and not rinsed before so all the rotten fruit from last week or the day before is right there in the box, FDA doesn't care as long as they get a check on friday. see the movie food inc to see the real story

I see it all the time.

My friends that work at the BC health department say all people inflicted have eaten fruits and/or vegetables from the Saturday farmers market.

I guess they don't want to cause a panic and put hmong farmers out of business. But driving by a strawberry patch recently, I realized the only bathroom is a port-a-potty. Go potty, go back to the fields, without hand washing.

How many of us have bought a basket of strawberrys and eaten one on the way home without washing them first? Ewwww.......

Saturday market has the best, locally grown sprouts you can find. Supermarket sprouts are usually always gross.

Has the Health Department checked the local egg supply?

I'm pretty sure the City of Chico decided, when allowing people to raise their chickens without Health Department oversight, they would NOT test for this along with other chicken diseases such as Asian bird flu.

This means any disease present will mean more suits against the city for the sickness and death which may occur. These are the same "wonderkind" who allowed rat feces in restaurants to be overlooked until pointed out by the police.

And we PAY them and insure their PENSIONS for this filthy performance. What a poor return on our tax dollars.

I do not trust where our chicken we eat come from.
Same thing with eggs.
I think it is best for us to grow our own chicken to eat.
