    Thanks, Misty, for letting us know about this. If this keeps up, we will all be a nation of paranoid people.

    I'm glad it's summer...I love shopping in the country and farmer's markets to get seasonal fresh veggies and fruits. I love fresh eggs, and can the difference between those and store bought ones. I buy meats from the market where cattle is raised local. Who knows where the meat at the grocery chains come from! It's getting scary with all the recalls!
    I would love to have my own garden, but never had time for one.

    My mother was soooooo mad at me when I started buying raw cow's milk from a local lady ("Don't you know that pasteurization KILLS all the germs in milk? You're going to kill your whole family drinking that stuff!"). I'm having a hard time now, with all the e coli, botulism, etc cases in processed foods, keeping from saying "Yeah...raw milk is soooooooooo dangerous!" LOL

    Are Walmart's store brand on this list yet? I just had some french style green beans the other day. I'm already altering my way of buying groceries after getting ill right after eating the Austex Beef Stew. This is getting ridiculous. Obviously the health of the public means nothing to our government, inspectors, and the CEO's and owners of these companies.

    omg you got ill! i'm so sorry for you. i hope you are feeling better though.

    how soon after eating the stew did you get sick? you should be okay with the beans. if i were you i would quit eating from cans too!

    isn't it sickening when they do these recalls and they aren't publicizing them enough? i mean you gotta read this on a message board when you or your kid's lives are in danger!

    If this keeps up we will need a special FORUM just for food recalls - geez

    So often times it happens that we live our life in chains, and we never even know we have the key. ...Eagles, "Already Gone"

    Thanks for posting this! I have a can of the Happy Harvest green beans in my cupboard. It doesn't match the numbers on the recall but I still think Im going to pitch it.

    I was thinking the same thing the other day. This is getting beyond ridiculous trying to keep up with all these recalls!
