By the end of this year, I hope to have more devoted readers than there are sprout outbreaks and recalls.  As I sit here today, it’s pretty much neck and neck, and I’ll be honest, my competition is relentless.  See my earlier post (TODAY!!!) on the ongoing Salmonella outbreak in Michigan .  And this just in:  The California Department of Health warns consumers not to eat Los Angeles Calco, Inc. brand alfalfa sprout products "because the products may be contaminated with Salmonella."  

What a shocker.  Salmonella and sprouts; sprouts and Salmonella.  Though there are not yet any illnesses known to be linked to Calco, Inc’s products, we must wait for the public health folks in California, who are no strangers to outbreaks associated with raw produce, to connect all the dots.  We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
