Beef vs. Spinach: who's dirtier?

Posted Oct 23 2008 1:20pm
Yes, this is regarding the current e. coli situation. Here is what Jingee had to say about it:

1. 73,000 people a year, roughly 200 people a day are affected by e. coli contamination from Beef.
2. Only 20 people have been affected by e. coli contamination from produce in the last 10 years.
3. Some news sources especially the AP are trying to make it sound like there have been 20 e. coli outbreaks from produce in the last five years. Their wording is very clever. You have to read carefully to see that it is only 20 individual cases. This is hardly worth mentioning when you consider that around 200 people a day are affected by e. coli from Beef.


It's a bit maddening.
