How in the world did we ever survive without these people??? /s
Nanny State PING!
And we’re paying for it. Paying the salaries of the idiots in the PR section of FDA and Dept. Ag., who PR themselves into promotions.
Plus the Food Safety Act is in itself dubious. Haven’t read it, too jargony, but I think there are severe restrictions on gardening in the name of Food Safety, just say the word ‘safety’ and you’ll automatically think of NANNY STATE, us peasants remain stupid and uninformed. They’ve got us, so far.
Adults don’t know this? A two year old should know to wash their hands. Any group of 10 year old 4-H’ers knows the 4 C’s probably knew it earlier. I see the gov has confused the 4 C’s by changing the “don’t contaminate” to “separate” making it harder to memorize at first glance.
A better gov expense would be to discourage eco green bags that are full of germs and to stress to wash hands and produce before and after putting away the groceries at home.
