Study finds leafy green vegetables top source of food poisoning; more deaths tied to poultry

NEW YORK — A big government study has fingered leafy greens like lettuce and spinach as the leading source of food poisoning, a perhaps uncomfortable conclusion for health officials who want us to eat our vegetables.

Bill Palladino – MLUI‘s insight:

Unfortunately there appears to be no data comparing small farms to factory-sized farms and this food safety crisis.  I’d also be interested in the impact mileage from origin has on this issue.  Are organics differentiated.  A lot of questions here.
