E coli in beef from Town and Country Foods.

Salmonella in lettuce from Dole.

Salmonella Sushi outbreak is up to 141 sick. Moon Marine is recalling their yellowfin tuna in response.

The Oregon raw milk associated E. coli outbreak is up to 18 ill, with 4 children hospitalized. Doesn't sound like much, but turns out to be all from a 4 cow dairy... which makes the proportion of exposed to ill to hospitalized pretty harsh.

And 4 people have been charged with trimming, repackaging, and selling moldy cheese.

Yeah. I know, the grammar in that sentence is atrocious; I'm not even convinced it's a sentence. Whattayagonnado? In real words, it means that they've expanded last week's recall of 650 cases of sprouts to 6,723 cases. The name is still horribly ironic. :)

The Deseret News reports that a long investigation by Utah public health officials has identified queso fresco, a soft Mexican cheese, as the cause of a Salmonella outbreak that has sickened as many as 2,000 people over 3 years.
Officials with the Salt Lake Valley Health Department have tracked the source of a three-year outbreak of salmonella to an unauthorized food producer in Salt Lake City.

A man referred to as "Mr. Cheese" was apparently producing queso fresco in his home using raw milk.

Since 2009, health department officials noticed an increase in the number of salmonella Newport cases and believe as many as 2,000 Utahns in six counties — Salt Lake, Davis, Weber, Morgan, Tooele and Utah — may have been affected, said Dr. Royal DeLegge, director of Salt Lake Valley Health Department's Environmental Health Division.


Of course, Mr. Cheese should face more than just civil lawsuits. The sale of raw milk in Utah is only allowed from farms directly to consumers. Plus, the environmental contamination that has to occur for a single producer to persist as a source of infection for 3 straight years is more than a little frightening to think about.
