Today’s must read: the spinach recall, 1 year later!

USA Today’s star science reporters, Elizabeth Weise and Julie Schmit, have produced an extraordinary investigative report on last year’s spinach recall. They see improvements in America’s food safety system as a result, but question whether these are nearly enough. I think this is great reporting. Take a look!

I found the linked USA Today article alarmist and not quite thorough in covering all the issues surrounding why the e.coli outbreak occurred. The Community Alliance for Family Farmers has an exhaustive list of links to more articles on this subject as well as an incisive, sensible presentation by Judith Redmond of Guinda, CA’s Full Belly Farm: http://www.caff.org/foodsafety/resources.shtml
