Yesterday, July 3, Jim Prevor, the Perishable Pundit, published a long series of posts (his ninth collection) on the tomato recalls. One of the last in this bunch is in response to some comments I sent him. We disagree about a number of points. But if it were easy to achieve safe food, we’d have it by now. I think it’s great that people like Jim are thinking seriously about these issues. See what you think of this debate.
