FTFA: The court also found that the company's challenges to FDA testing methods were "frivolous" and demonstrated "wanton disregard of a potential food safety hazard in its products."

Wanton disregard? Ok which one of you farmers wrote the FDA report?

"including air-conditioning condensation dripping into egg roll filling"Interestingly, this is also a euphemism used to describe certain services at Asian massage parlors.

I ate some salmonellad chicken a few years ago. (described the taste to a food health specialist at the local U, he said "youp, that sounds exactly like what it's 'supposed' to taste like".) It tasted slightly like how sewage smells, but saltier. Poor, hungry and really wanting to get back to the raid I just downed the plate, burped profusely, and sent a small prayer to the god of brown gooey vengance for mercy while downing a couple of liters of coke as the night went on.
Didn't have any problems at all. Either my stomach is made of adamantine and spite, coke kills salmonella, or my favourite, the one true God is the merciful god of brown gooey vengance :)

People get food poisoning all the time and either fight it off with nothing more than an unnoticeable fever and some intestinal distress for a couple of hours or just a well lets say a BM with less than desirable viscosity. Not that this means everyone is safe because well, sometimes they die.

Food safety isn't really for the benefit of healthy 23-year-olds. It's for pregnant ladies and little kids and old people.

Dammit, this is why we can't have nice things.

Try campylobacteriosis. For two delightful weeks, I could shiat in a glass and convince you it was tap water.

Chicken sashimi. Never again.

I worked in a food plant that was regulated by the USDA (not the FDA) and this article makes the FDA inspectors sound like a bunch of neutered wimps. Not a tenth of the BS foot-dragging that the article describes the company doing would have been possible under the USDA. They had the authority to close the plant and chain the doors at a moment's notice if they found something really bad.

FDA must be a bit different, unfortunately.

Seriously, those things are nasty. I try some every once in a while to see if they change, they never do. I mean every place on the planet must have its equivalent of "Chinese sounding name" on a box with frozen insults to Chinese cuisine in them.

I was at a diner and ordered a piece of mocha cake. It tasted exactly like a nice piece of Stilton and I looked down to discover that the entire inside was veined with blue mould. I pushed it aside and showed the waiter. He asked if I wanted a new piece.
 
2013-04-09 08:34:23 AM  
At what point does a company switch from USDA to FDA oversight? Is it similar to how I don't get taxed on raw chicken but get taxed on precooked wings? Why not have everything for human consumption under one set of rules?

Tell you what, it sounds like you've been traumatized. Why don't you come down to the spa that I own and get some of our most popular treatments on the house.  We have the cigar cutter finger massage, a truly life changing anvil shampoo and a hot iron facial that will take years off your life, I mean appearance.  Anyone willing to fall for, I mean have tastes refined enough to seek out, chicken sashimi should be up for the experience.

WTF raw poultry, FARK THAT! At least you won't go there again. Do you still do raw fish?

No experience beats food poisoning for ick, You really start to question life when you are sitting on the pot with a bucket in your lap and bounce between alternating which orifice things are charging out of, or having them both going full blast at the same time.

Never again.

But Free market will take care of them if there is a major outbreak.  The'd loose all the customers that tracked the news, remembered the company name, and recognized all of their different brand names, and more importantly the specific facility because if Chung stops making egg rolls at that facility, the same facility and staff will be assembling Applebe's appetizers in a few months.

They sure would hate to have to change their company name after poisoning a dozen people.

Chicken sashimi is in fact a regional dish popular in southern Kyushu. Even the Japanese government recommends against it. I got unlucky.

It hasn't put me off raw fish or blue steak, though.

Good, glad you still do the fish and beef. But dayum if I would ever eat raw poultry, even if I were in southern Kyushu. I'm not doing that puffer fish with mostly removed neurotoxins either.

The puffer fish is comparatively safe (and delicious). I checked the Japanese article on chicken sashimi for fun, and it indicates that there are about 500 of poisoning per year due to this dish.

It *was* quite tasty, just not worth two weeks of hell.

One Saturday years ago I was hungry and headed to Captain D's (seafood fast food). I ordered shrimp scampi and it tasted pretty good but when I was a little over half finished I suddenly started feeling nauseous, then really ill.  Drove the 5 mins to get home and immediately threw up, had the dry heaves, drank some water and threw up again.  Within about a hour I was feeling OK again.  Shortest bout of food poisoning ever.

gopher321: That company would fit right in back in China


Funny, I stopped eating those because I noticed on the package it said "Made in China" and this was stocked at a Kroger's store, too.

Anyway, 5-6 months later I look at a box and it says "Made in USA" in big red script.  I thought great!  Bought a box (that had no adverse effects) but I think I've probably eaten my last Chung's spring roll.

Gross!!
