All That is Good is Bad

I got up this morning and had an omelet and then I found out, "A half-billion eggs have been recalled in the nationwide investigation of a salmonella outbreak. More than 1,000 people have already been sickened and the toll of illness is expected to increase."

I didn't feel that bad so I went shopping at Walmart and bought... a Deli Sandwich, "About 380,000 pounds of possibly tainted deli meat products sold in sandwiches at Walmart stores have been recalled by a New York food company."

Damn I said, maybe I will quit eating red meat and just eat chicken so I bought some Chicken nuggets, "Purdue Farms is recalling nearly 92,000 pounds of chicken nuggets because of concern that a small number of them may contain pieces of plastic. The nuggets are sold in Walmart stores."

The plastic did not hurt me so I said I will just eat fish. "Recent laboratory tests found so much mercury in tuna sushi from stores and restaurants that at most of them, a regular diet of six pieces a week would exceed the levels considered acceptable by the Environmental Protection Agency."

I will be a vegetarian, that's the answer. "Some salads will be without the colorful red tomato as the fruit was recalled this week during a Salmonella scare.The Texas Department of State Health Services said Wednesday that that federal, state and local authorities are investigating a multi-state outbreak of the Saintpaul strain of the Salmonella bacteria."

Feeling bad about how my day was going just trying to eat, I got a headache and took a couple Tylenol. "Additional details have been released about the new Tylenol Recall that occurred on July 15th as the third recall in 2010. Johnson & Johnson recalled three million bottles of different kinds medicines."

At least the water was safe I took it with. " Boil Order Remains In Effect For Residents Of Central Texas Town due to bacteria."

I guess I will just have to drink beer, I have never seen it recalled.
