Last week, we told you that Italian-style meats were being linked to a Salmonella outbreak happening in Illinois, along with 16 other states. At the time, no brand name had been identified as being the source. Now, they have.
Hold on there, Mother Nature. I think I speak for most Illinoisans when I say it was bad enough dealing with deer ticks and the possibility of contracting Lyme Disease. Do we really need another blood-sucking, virus spreading, creepy-crawly here in Illinois?
Today is just not a good day for food news. First, we find out that there will very likely be a shortage of Thanksgiving Day turkeys, and now we're being told that Italian-style meats (which I love) are being linked to Salmonella outbreaks in 17 states, including Illinois.
The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated recommendations for mask-wearing due to the Delta Variant of COVID-19 were recently announced, and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) said last week that they're fully adopting those recommendations.
When the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) says that it is fully adopting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) new masking guidelines, it's a pretty safe bet that others will follow suit.
Depending on your perspective, it's been quite a week for food product recalls. It's bad for the companies that have had to issue recall notices, but good for those of us who like to eat food without running a big risk of food poisoning.
