The United States is widely believed to have one of the safest food supplies in the world. This is due in large part to the constant diligence of the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In a continued effort to maintain the safety of food in Kentucky and around the country the FDA and CDC made a joint announcement recently regarding a potentially dangerous product.
People go to the grocery store and like to believe that the food being purchased is safe to eat. Past outbreaks of E. coli have caused people to realize that this may not always be true. A recent outbreak in Kentucky has caused people to get sick, and the defective product responsible for the outbreak has not yet been identified.
