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.

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

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

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.

Think that freezing food kills E. coli and other nasty microbes?

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