Sprouts have gotten a bad rap recently, and I suspect that the sprout market will have that much-maligned feeling for many months to come. In this day and age, with all the channels of communication available to health departments (federal and state) around the country, and all the detective work that we do here at Marler Clark, outbreaks simply do not go unnoticed. Which brings me to my point. If you’re a sprout devotee whose simply not going to be deterred by the recent Salmonella outbreaks and recalls linked to your favorite risky food, maybe you should read this article and take it’s advice to follow the developing outbreaks on Twitter. That way, particularly if you’re going to continue to eat sprouts and you live in . . . well, almost anywhere between the Rocky Mountains and the Eastern Seaboard, you can at least have the most up-to-date information before eating any Salmonella contaminated sprouts.
