    Reported outbreaks in 6 states. 8% of the people affected have had kidney failure.

    The same corporation with the spinach contamination, Ready Pac Produce based out of Irwindale, California is the supplier of Taco Bell's scallions.

    This company really needs to look at their hygiene practices or they will be going out of business if they aren't already headed that way. They need to get shut down until they figure out where the problem is. This is a CDC matter.

    I think I heard a reason being that some of the cow manure fertilizer used in the fields wasn't aged (or maybe treated) properly and had the virus in it. I will say that the smell from the feed lots off I5 have a totally different odor than the cow farms I grew up next door to.

    I've used local cow manure for years on our garden and never experienced any problems. And "aging" is what it gets as it breaks down over winter in the garden.

    I hadn't ever realized that green onions were THIS dangerous, I think I'll avoid them until these things stop happening.

    And Taco Bell, permanently, that places calls for a stomach of steel.

    Yep, grow your own, at least what you can. Relaxing hobby, gets you some exercise, and saves a few bucks at the grocery store.

    Yoooz guys! Crack me up sometimes!

    Run for the Juan.

    Guess this puts a new angle on Jimmy's stupid joke when he got off the plane in the City.

    Guess this may start new beer commercials . . . Just like ole' Jimmy, there runs Juan.

    PS - does anyone remember ole' Jimmy?

    Maybe it's not the green onions after all. It might be the white.
