Summary:  "Freezing does slow down the microbes that cause food to spoil, but it's pretty much useless for killing dangerous bugs."

Anyone who was, up until now, cooking their hamburgers in the freezer, please raise your hand and get in line for sterilization surgery.  It's for the good of mankind.

Although it's NPR, so the film will just be a sound-effects clip of a projector starting up.

First rule of cooking a pizza in a microwave.

If the cheese doesn't look slightly burned, and you don't need a fork to dig the crust off the metal part of the tray the pizza sits on so you can place it on a plate.  Then you didn't cook it enough.

2nd rule.  Cooking at the office is fine and dandy, use the oven at home when you can.

Evil Mackerel: So don't buy processed food.


Processed food like spinach, lettuce and beansprouts?

Spinach off market for potential E. coli
E. coli source likely lettuce at KFC/Taco Bell
German bean sprouts source of E. coli outbreak

Anyone ignorant enough to think that deserves to die a horrible death from food poisoning. As does the author of TFA.

This. Buy some fresh ingrediants and spend 30damn minutes away from the tv to make your own dish. Its cheaper, more nutritious, and less likely to have been handled by a dozen people who wipe with their hands.

You actually can kill E. Coli with freeze/thaw.  No it won't kill all of them, which is why you should cook it.

Should premature ejaculation occur, the Joy of Sex album comes equipped with BIG JIM SLADE.

Big Jim, former tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, is outfitted with various whips, chains, and a sexual appetite that will knock your socks off!

Big Jim has satisfied women throughout the world, and the capital of Nebraska is Lincoln!

/Too many great quotes in that movie

Dammit, I know that's a quote from a movie and I can't think from where.

Well, I think it's a quote anyway.

THIS is why i've long been suspicious of the ice maker.....nice to know it wasn't just the noises it makes...

The article does not mention fresh food that are then frozen. I am aware of farm fresh food not being properly cleaned may have  E coli.  By reading the posted article  you might understand.

I live near a Tyson factory. I was joking with the lady about the delicious friend chicken I always smelled. She then told me "No we just process them here. We don't even kill them. It is the washing station" -I looked confused then walked away. Basically once place slaughters---one place cleans--then they go on another truck to be packaged--then they get packaged and go to the grocery store.
Your frozen food-
Gets made somewhere---maybe or maybe not cooked in the same place--then sent somewhere else to be packaged. Then sent to a distribution center-then on a truck AGAIN to your store.
SERIOUSLY just really. My food has been more places than I have by the time it flipping makes it to my table.
MY ANSWER to this
a place called Leonards. All local food market. Cause this shiat has gotten the fark out of hand.
