The CDC has just released its latest report on cases of illness due to eating contaminated food in the ten states it uses to track such information. The bottom line: There was some progress prior to 2004, but not much progress since then. Worse, toxic cases of E. coli are increasing. The CDC says you should be following standard food-safety procedures. Of course you should. But how come the CDC isnt pushing companies to produce safer foods in the first place?!
