It is time to pass S. 510 BEFORE this is on the Senate Dining Room Menu:

Next week I will be co-chairing the ACI Foodborne Illness Litigation Conference in Chicago and co-hosting an evening meal for speakers. I had to approve the dinner menu, which got me thinking (after nearly 20 years) about what a Marler Clark Potluck would look like.  Then I started thinking about what if this was on the Senate Dining Room Menu on the day that it was “Take a child or grandchild to lunch day.” 

Here is the menu for the meal from hell:


Soft Cheese Plate with Celery, Cantaloupe and Hummus


Spinach Salad with Peanut Dressing, Tomatoes and Sprouts, topped with Pistachios

Caesar Salad topped with slices of Beef Tri-Tip

Main Course

Orange Shredded Chicken with White and Black Pepper Sauce

Bison Burgers with Jalapenos and Green Onions

Canned Chili with Parsley

Chicken Pot Pies with an Egg Wash


Raw Milk Ice Cream with Shredded Raw Almonds

Cookie Dough Ice Cream with Raw Milk Chocolate Colostum Topping


Seasonal Beer from a Recently Cleaned Tap

Imported Water from Colorado

Frankly, I could go on and on. You can make up your own menu by visiting nearly 20 years of foodborne illness litigation at Marler Clark.
