... Welcome back... try this appetizer... dated may 30... food stories are moving away from that famous diabetic... Paula Deen... and Michelle's back yard patch of greens...
the New York Times ran with this tasty bit... the lead paragraph...
IF YOU DINED ON TILAPIA RECENTLY CHANCES ARE IT CAME FROM CHINA....
...COUSIN... what is not noted in that yarn... TILAPIA is a farm raised fin fish
best sourced in the clean waters of Columbia and Peru...along the waters of the Pacific ocean...not some filthy tank not inspected in remote Chinese provinces...
....need more for food talk fodder??? ...scroll this website...say you read it here second...

TALK show callers will go bonkers with this one...the GOP
defends Pink Slime hamburgers???
Top Repubs tour beef plant
and see nothing wrong with use of ammonia to kill bacteria
(read e.coli) and treat fatty scraps before they are ground into
school lunch patties and cheap eats for a market near you. Again,
cousin, fault the media for grossing out consumer. Question: In
this nation's four food groups -- pizza, pasta, Chinese and hamburger --
will there be a plank in the August GOP convention to outlaw pizza?
Poor Whole Foods...they took a punch on this one for selling
"organic foods" found on their shelves while clearly marked
PRODUCT OF CHINA.
The upscale and pricey chain copped
a plea by saying they rely on private inspectors in China to
certify organic status. The packaging label reads CALIFORNIA
BLEND. The chain pitches "locally grown" across the nation...
but...check your packaging of stir fry, peanut butter, cauliflower,
strawberries...even sugar snap peas. Callers: Start by dumping
on lack of USDA jurisdiction for all imported foods, then search
out a farm market in your own Zip Code.
Good news for cigarette puffers; Fed judge
snuffs out grisly labels FDA wanted on labels.
Tobacco companies objected to intent to
showcase bodies on an autopsy table, a smoker
blowing smoke through a tracheotomy hole in
his throat....those legal weed outfits contend
their constitutional rights were violated...funeral
homes can prep to receive 443,000 bodies this year...
callers may ask if cemeteries have smoking and
Paula Deen shocked by lack of peer and public support
following her diabetes revelation...
the butter and grease
fry cook came out of the cupboard a bit late to win foodie
friends...look for her next move...she'll find someone to
ghost her "I'm Cured" book...Oprah will book her for the
OWN midnight slot... she'd be a good fit on The Chew...
What HuffPost says is, in a measure, screw all this
talk about foie gras, a cruel delicacy to many.
Huff makes a case for more crushing worldwide food
issues...blue fin tuna for one...feedlot beef...talk
issues, here's a starting point...
Talk about splitting hairs...
a Consumers Union scientist said
banning a Pfizer drug used in chicken feed is "long overdue."
FDA says 3-Nitro will continue to be sold. Start a campaign:
Everytime you buy chicken in a market, ask the counter person
if the packaged chicken was raised on the 3-Nitro carcinogen?
Blank stares will result.
Chinese vitamin plants never inspected...
Foreign drugs, medical devices flawed...
FDA alert system, circa 2001, still not working...
New FDA food-drug boss overwhelmed, make that alarmed
over agency's ability to monitor stuff coming into USA;
too many ports of entry, too few inspectors; China
authorities "in many instances" refuse to cooperate as
they continue to ship in "counterfeit" ingredients;
Obama backed tough enforcement, but GOP senate
refused to fund food cops..
Fifty six diners made ill after meal in Ohio eatery;
law firm specializing in food-poisoning litigation
takes case after woman dies; salmonella blamed;
restaurant already has settled five other potential
claims...Marler Clark, a Seattle law firm has the case...
New food safety problems popping up in China...
Diseased pigs used for bacon; corn used to make noodles...
rotten meat used to make sausages; pork sold as
"Tron blue" because bacteria made it glow in dark...
tainted food scandals so numerous the government
has lost control...and, yes, China food exports
find happy market shelves in the USA. Can we talk???
Get out your Muggers Express card...
Our State Department tallied 111 Americans killed
in Mexico in 2010...mostly near the border...
If your travel plans call for vacations or business
in Mexico, that taco government said 15,000 of
its citizens were knocked off...but the good news
is that most were gangsters...bad guys, druggers...
Comforting, isn't it???
101 Best Restaurants in America???
Talk about a debate issue in this country...
The only reason we pass this along is the editor/compiler,
Colman Andrews...highly respected when it comes to
restaurants and the food on the plates...101???
Read his intro comments on the 101, but for meat
of the debate, scan down on each for the comments
of readers, there's the debate heat...example, Arthur
Bryant's in KC. Now there's a joint that invites varied
opinions. The big plus for Coleman's "best" list...he
enlisted 30 legit reviewers/critics to assist. Talk about
grist for a food TALK show... this is grist for best...
Pack your dental records if this NYTimes story is appealing...
If you go, have a valid Muggers Express secured in a zippered
belly pack. NYTimes ran a puff piece praising the food scene
in Tijuana...noting that crime has dropped nearly 40 percent in
the region...later noting that 2008 was the high mark for crime...
murders, kidnapping, drug cartels...well, all that should lure mobs
back to Caesar's for raw egg on dressed-up romain...oh, 2008
Tijuana tallied 843 murders. Kabul looks good for summer
In New York a tub of KFC chicken may not be with a Kentucky recipe...
There's a chicken war going on in the Big Apple, one that has that old
southern tintype, Colonel Sanders, boiling and roiling in his heavenly
deep fat fryer. Afghan fry cook Abdul Haye owns a trademark for his
version of KFC...Kennedy Fried Chicken. Haye even has his own
"secret recipe" sauce. More than we need to know: NYC has more than
350 Afghan-owned chicken joints.
The most written-about health problem...apparently the least-read...
Obesity. Every newspaper, magazine, blogger, website, classroom,
comic...even the new Oprah network devotes endless energy to the
fat problem...NYC's mayor may try to ride into the White House on a
campaign to kill off fat foods. Download this link and see your future

the second reason to avoid moving to Mississippi.
You are what you eat. Scary, isn't it?
Thanks to Taco Bell flap over just what is in that shell...???s are being
asked ...when Comedy Central's Colbert Report read the first of Taco Bell's
troubles after a lawsuit was filed, one of the posted ingredients...one, Colbert
said, was sand... on the required list of ingredients that element you are passing
through your alimentary canal is listed as silicon dioxide. So, the Wall Street Journal
went after the fast fooders as a bunch. Of the 20 chains contacted, most of them
declined to respond. Silicon dioxide? Ya want fries with that?
Ever wonder how Fed tax dollars are wasted?
New web probe, junket sleuth, tracks excess
spending of Uncle Sam's dollars...you're spending
