    I'd like to see a link on the 3,000 deaths being at-risk individuals.

    Of the 16 which died recently from domestic cantaloupes, only one had an immune disorder and two were elderly. None of the infants that were sickened by industrial lubricant that got infant Tylenol recalled had risk factors. It is simply not true that only the immune-comprised have problems with tainted food.

    I'd like to know when the citizens of the USA are going to grow tired of the "most powerful country in the world" being dependent on FOOD from other countries and the FARMERS here being treated like red headed stepchildren. Why do we need food from other places? The USA is vast with plenty of land to GROW OUR OWN.

    But now the government wants to label ALL foods "Grown in the World" so the consumer is ignorant of where their money goes for a can of frigging beans. I want to buy AMERICAN. But if the government gets its way, none of us will know what is grown where.
