There are days I wonder why I read the news, but it was while reading news that I found out about this: 5 million frozen pizzas recalled — Important news to me, because I had one of these death pizzas in my freezer! It was in the running to be dinner tonight! A Totino's Party Crust Pepperoni Pizza with the possibility of an extra topping of E. coli! Oh no! Well, it was yummy consigned to the garbage can, alas. The manufacturer says to send them the UPC and they'll send a new pizza, but honestly, who wants that now?

Seriously, what's up with America's food production? Lately, every two weeks or so we get this huge food recall of one sort or another. Is it too much to ask for food that won't make us ill?

I'm afraid that I won't know how to act if someone feeds me good food.

I'm surprised the pizza was not made of lead.

I don't think the Chinese are making frozen Pizza's for export yet.

There probably IS lead in those cheap pizzas, and the E. Coli bonds with lead in strange and unpredictable ways.

That's a good point you raise - let's not let all of the bad news out of China about product safety lull us in to a false sense of security about that which is made in the USA. Personally, I blame W. It may not be his fault, but there's so much that IS his fault, why take chances? :)

If it's not his fault directly, he's part of the bigger problem. So it works for me.

OTOH
Properly cooking the pizza should kill off the little nasties. I'm not sure if there is a EC variant that can withstand a 450 degree oven...but I'd be willing to bet good money against it.


(PS: Totino's from the dollar store or Sav-A-Lot are my pizza of choice...)

Re: OTOH
Nope, it shouldn't and there were only eight people in Tenn. who came down with it (as far as I know). So far I'm thinking that eight people didn't bother to wash their hands, not a factory contamination.

Re: OTOH
Either that, or they don't cook their pizzas?

Re: OTOH
But they're in the oven for only 10-12 minutes... would that be enough time to kill the wee beasties?

Re: OTOH
As long as the pizza reaches 160 degrees (according to news sources) it'll zap 'em.

They'll come back and charge me more for a two-item pizza that was originally advertised as a one-item pizza.....
