Well, No Shit!

I just wanted to say that. :)
Pun? BWAH!
Spinach E. Coli outbreak linked to cow manure:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Cattle manure from a ranch in California's Salinas Valley carries
E. coli bacteria that match the strain that killed three Americans and sickened 200, U.S. health officials said on Thursday.
[...]
But seriously, E. coli comes from shit. They use shit for fertilizer, so your veggies are going to have shit on them, consequently, they're going to have E. coli on them.

Didn't their mama ever teach them to wash veggies before eating them?

The thing is, you can wash the spinach til you're blue...uh...green...in the face, and it won't do any good. The spinach plants suck up the nutrients in the manure, including the little e-coli beasties, so it's IN the spinach, literally.

But at least it will get off the exterior berms. The ones on there from the pickers wiping their ass with it.

It seems that the e-coli is running the world these days...They have big problem in Scandinavia too. They have found e-coli in fruit, vegetables, meat and even the water.
