THEY TOLD ME IF I SUPPORTED THE TEA PARTY WE’D SEE DEADLY MEAT SOLD TO CONSUMERS. AND THEY WERE RIGHT!

Federal officials said they turned up a dangerous form of salmonella at a Cargill Inc. turkey plant last year, and then four times this year at stores selling the Cargill turkey, but didn’t move for a recall until an outbreak killed one person and sickened 77 others. . . .

Meat plants are expected to pass a performance standard that allows up to 49.9 percent of tests to come back positive for salmonella. A Cargill spokesman said the Arkansas plant had passed all USDA performance standards despite what he called “routine” findings of salmonella Heidelberg.

So when they’re telling you that if you don’t want tax increases you must want people to sell contaminated meat while the government does nothing, tell them no, that’s how things work now.
