Wayne Farms is foreign owned by a company in Belgium.

How many illegal food handlers working in restaurants have T.B.? Did they pass it on to the cute blond serving you and has her kids passed it on to your child?

No mention of their status withrespect to immigration? Are we to assume that all these workers were legal immigrants?

I blame our selfish, greedy government for this. They alone, are responsible for why we, and our children have been exposed to the things that so much time was spent eradicating in the borders of this country.

A shameless bunch of traitors they are. I really hope for them to become the victims of their greed.

The state’s response indicates clearly the answer to your question.

I’m glad you keep posting that pic of the Senators having a good chuckle. That picture speaks a thousand words.

Right on! There is NO WAY in hell that there isn't a connection between these outbreaks and illegal aliens. Where were these breakouts of disease before we were overrun with these criminals?

Whether it’s contamination with tacos or chicken or pizza or lettuce or scallions, the illegals are to blame.

The US has turned into a third world country as far as food safety is concerned.
All the warnings about traveling abroad now applies to us.

TB was wiped out in our country. It is back because there are among us ‘Americans’ who provide illegals with the work they need to stay here.

Final TB count: 1

This is the most misleading headline I have ever seen. While 212 tested positive, that only means that sometime in their life they were exposed to the TB virus. It does not mean that they had the disease or that they will develop the disease, only that they had been exposed.

It is necessary to first be exposed to the disease before one “gets” it.

My grandmother, a nurse in a TB sanitarium in Wisconsin, died of the disease when my mother was 12.

This scourge had been eliminated, but apologists and rationalizers have carried the day.

Nit. Tuberculosis is cause by a bacterium, not a virus.

>>About 10 percent of latent TB infections eventually become active TB disease, usually because of a compromised immune system.<<

That means that if you catch the flu and have latent TB infections, there is a good chance that the flu will develop into an active tuberculosis disease.

Tsk Tsk Tsk. Our diversity is our strength. TB victims need love to! A drivers license will help cure the disease.

Thirty-five years ago, I contracted TB. I broke some ribs, and the TB showed up on the X-rays. I was immediately put in a locked down TB Ward in Milwaukee’s County General Hospital. I was there for over six months before they finally figured out that I had Atypical TB. Not contagious, and probably gotten from working in my garden. I had separated two large Lily beds a few times in the previous years. Tubers. I had to take medicine for over a year.

There was a time, say maybe 30 years ago when that would have been a reasonable assumption. These days, I don’t think so.
