    Does anyone ever wonder or get concerned about the amount of food that is wasted by these recalls? It’s totally outrageous, I think, and there ought to be some mechanisms in place to prevent such waste of food. Wait! We have a drought now and food won’t be plentiful. Maybe then everyone will start to realize how important clean and healthful food processing needs to become.
