If you eat iceberg lettuce, you should be prepared for anything.

What I heard about this parasite is it is only transmitted by human fecal contamination and it requires days outside the body to become infectious. You can't catch it from rats in the kitchen or your waiter taking a dump in your salad. You can catch if from a farm worker in the tropics who picked your vegetables two weeks earlier.

William Marler, a Seattle lawyer who often leads class-action lawsuits... said consumers have a right to judge for themselves

Afraid somebody will beat you to the contingency fee?

If strict liability does not apply, proving negligence may be impossible.

Food poisoning is the worst. 3 times from fast food joints. Once at moms house. Sorry mom.

I very rarely eat that crap anymore.  Next time I will seek legal advice.

 I had bagged lettuce last week and got the squirts.

Thanks subby for submitting. It'll help remind me to wash the lettuce next time.

ZAZ: You can't catch it from rats in the kitchen


Also if it's air born. Cleaning out dirty, dusty garages, attics, vacated apartments ect. Dried rodent/animal excrement starts to fly like 'dust'. Hantavirus or Tularema city.

People don't wear proper masks are just asking for it.

All the poop and nothing but the poop.

FTA: "Mandernach said in an interview that some people ate the salads at home or at private functions..."


And this resulted in many more "private functions" at home...

[...]

FTA: "This information is going to come out. It's just a question of when, not whether," Marler said..."


And information isn't the only thing that is coming out.

webthing01: I had bagged lettuce last week and got the squirts.


I did and my wife just confirmed she did too. Too bad, that salad was tasty at the time. Our kids didn't as far as I know tho- they're old enough to wipe their own ass but don't quite understand yet the intricacies of poop.

Dude... if you ever saw the inside of an outhouse in a farm field, you'd know why sh*tting in the field is preferable

/worked harvesting fruit a couple of Summers

When public-health officials try to withhold such information, he said, "it makes it look like they care more about the industry than they do about the consumers, and that's exactly the wrong message to be sending people the case."

Next thing you know, they're going to ban pooping in peoples' food.  Before long, the government will outlaw every form of joy you can find in life, screw that pursuit of happiness bullpoopie.
 
2013-07-30 10:47:42 PM  
bagged? I asked for it tossed!

har har har
 
2013-07-30 10:48:21 PM  
I don't care what race or country-no matter how well your partner washes, you're always going to consume a little shiat when you eat tossed salad.

Oh, and from eating lettuce, too.

OMG... What does your mom say about you calling her food "crap"?

I'd bet Thanksgiving is awk-ward.

I don't eat iceberg lettuce anyway, I hate it.

I just had salad last night. Lets see what happens.

Kittypie070: I don't eat iceberg lettuce anyway, I hate it.


The good thing about iceberg lettuce is you can't see 90% of it.

Anastacya: I just had salad last night. Lets see what happens.


I predict you poop it out.  If it takes 3 weeks and it is mostly liquid you probably ate shiat.

Mandernach ... I read that as Bandersnatch

It takes days after ingesting it before it makes its presence known.  I had it many years ago. I thought I was having an appendicitis. The cure was serveral days of some horse pill sized  medicine, which I think might have been an anitibiotic

Don't outbreaks like this have to be reported to the feds? Even if the IDIA won't release the info, a federal FOIA request to the CDC or FDA or other appropriate agency ought to get the info.

Tough shiat. You ate salad. You knew you didn't know what you were getting into.

Jebus, how the hell do you survive weeks of the splatter shiats? I would think you wouldn't have any energy and unless you were on an IV, probably dehydrated as hell. I'd imagine you'd lose a bit of weight too. The last flu bug I got a while back gave me the shiats and vomiting for 4 days and I lost damn near 10 pounds.

thanks for the advice "assjuice".  bagged salad, spinach and cole slaw saves time for millions of busy people.

FTA: The product is no longer on shelves, he said. Also, he said, the manufacturer is not a brand that many people would recognize, and the product could have been sold under other brands.

Soooo...I'm guessing it's Dole?

This is why our version of the "free market" doesn't work.

Or really any free market implemented by mankind, because a consumer will never have all the information he needs for the market to function properly.

Agreed. This website has state FOI info but the link for Iowa is borken.

Can the government subsidize the farmers not to grow feces?

I use it just for this reason.
It's amazing how much gunk is on fruits and veggies even after washing under running water.

Salad DOES help you loose weight.

obviously you've never met a senior citizen that struggles with kitchen tasks, a person with severe arthritis or someone who has nerve, muscle or tendon damage in their hands.

When I want to have diarrhea I just go to Taco Bell.

/it took this long, seriously?
