be careful with the meats in your mouth

i went to sleep dreaming about this.
i had a full-blown nightmare too.
you gotta watch the meats you putting in your mouth.
no,
seriously.
this is “cooking light” had to share…

The CDC, USDA, and FDA are currently investigating a four-state outbreak of Listeria. Eight people have currently been hospitalized, and one person in Michigan has died. The outbreak is active in Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. According to a notice from the CDC, “Epidemiologic and laboratory evidence indicates that meats and cheeses sliced at deli counters might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes and could make people sick.”

People affected by the outbreak have each eaten different types and brands of deli meats and cheeses in various locations, and a single supplier has not yet been identified.

The CDC is not recommending that retailers stop selling deli products or that consumers avoid eating deli-sliced meat or cheese. However, retailers should make sure to clean deli slicers and areas where products are stored, prepared, or served to customers to avoid cross-contamination.

Those with higher risk for severe Listeria infection—such as pregnant women, newborns, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems—should consider avoiding any deli products, or heating them to an internal temperature of 165 degrees (or until steaming hot) to kill listeriosis.

Listeria symptoms are flu-like and include fatigue, stiff neck, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, confusion, and muscle aches.

wtf is going oooonnnnnnnn???
i am legit petrified at this news.
i won’t eat a turkey and cheese AGAIN.

  1. Oh that’s so scary and that’s one of the reasons why I was considering becoming a vegan but I admit I haven’t been able to give on meat just yet but I just don’t have the will power at the moment lol! And shout out to fried chicken. 😂 😂😂

        1. Hahaha lol! Oh you are terrible shame on you now get in your cyber corner and hold your head down in shame. 😂😂😂

  2. That is why I became a vegetarian and my friend follow suit by being a vegan! I feel so much better! Kudos to all

  3. Actually veganism and being a vegetarian are not really that much more beneficial. You can still get cancer if you are a vegan. The only thing it does is lower the cancer risk but prevents nothing. There have been people who have lived off meat their entire lives and lived to be 100.

    The funny thing about being vegan is that folks don’t want to use animal products or harm animals because they are alive. Well, fruit is alive also. Fruit and vegetables are living organisms.

    While you don’t need excessive amounts of meat in your diet, that’s only if you are not active. If you exercise and burn a lot of calories, you are going to have a ridiculous plan to keep up. Eggs and other proteins come easier and are also less expensive.

    Also, if you look at nature, animals that eat plants are strong, but carnivores are strong as well and all they eat is meat. Bears eat both and can knock a person’s head off with one paw swipe.

    Veganism and Vegetarianism are said to be harmful for the environment because a lot of things people want to sustain these diet are not locally grown so they have to import them from other countries. While this sounds peachy on the surface, these fad trendy ways of living actually rob countries of their natural produce. Some countries have already banned it because of the depletion in their resources.

    Humans are omnivores. The human race survived by being able to eat both plants and animals. We don’t necessarily have the same worries as they did back then tho.

    The problem is not that people eat meat…the problem is that they eat it in excess and don’t have a balanced diet. If humans shouldn’t eat meat, it would never be able to digest and form muscle.

    When I do eat meat, I bake everything I cook..and I don’t use most American processed oils if I decide to cook in a pan.

    I rarely eat pork, or even beef. I will eat chicken but I prefer turkey and lamb.

    I don’t eat cold cuts. Every piece of meat I eat, it gets baked or fried, always!! I do eat more veggies and fruit than meat though.

  4. I don’t think becoming a Vegan will help. Over the past 10 months we have seen contamination in Lettuce, Spinach, Avocado’s, Beef, Chicken etc. The biggest problem is that the Republican Party cut the budget to the FDA and the USDA. Because of the budget cuts, staffing has been severely reduced.We don’t have the level of QA testing in food processing as did several years ago. My fear is that this is going to get worse… Trump and the rest of the conservative party really doesn’t care…

    1. To elaborate more, the only reason why these vegetables have been contaminated is because of cross contamination with livestock and the diseases those animals carry.

      I can assure you growing fresh vegatables or buying local vegatables will never have the same impact as meat.

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
