Once again the corporate farming practices in the Central Valley of California has caused an outbreak of Mr. E. Coli. I wrote about it in September when instead of lettuce, which sickened and injured 81 people, http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/2007/NEW01546.html,  it was spinach that injured and killed people (see http://elimloth.livejournal.com/64943.html). Now here we are again with the same circumstances: a vegetable field next to an active dairy with antibiotic enhanced E. Coli shitting cows dropping virulent O157:H7 bacteria within walking, crawling, and wind tossing distance from fresh lettuce.
