Fast Food Nation (continued)

Here is just one more reason why those of us living in this Fast Food Nation should be thinking very very carefully about where our food comes from these days - an outbreak of food poisoning linked to sliced tomatoes on McDonalds' sandwiches.

If you've read the book, you know that a precautionary measure means they're pretty sure it's their fault but instead of allowing the government to investigate and prove it, they'll take a preemptive measure. The tainted food has probably already been shipped backed to the distributors it was purchased from - since school is still in session, they may even re-sell the food to school lunch programs somewhere. Nobody dead yet doesn't mean that nobody will have long lasting health problems. And let's not forget the ultimate gross factor, which is that many of the germs that cause food poisoning, come from sh*t. On your food. You want fries with that?

Okay, I almost threw up. I'm pretty sure I don't want that with my fries. But of course that is why I haven't stepped foot inside a MickeyD's except to use their bathroom for years.
