AMERICANS need to demand that the FDA implements rules to protect the USA from the most dangerous form of E. Coli ever

This should be a page 1 story on every newspaper in America.–kas
“E. Coli Strain Could Be Deadliest; Bacterium Would Be Legal in U.S. The World Health Organization is warning that a strain of E. coli that’s killed 17 people and sickened nearly 2,000 more in Europe may be the deadliest ever seen. The bacterium is believed to be a mutant combination of two different strains. According to the Washington Post, the bacterium that has caused the deaths would be legal in the United States if discovered on meat or poultry because of a regulatory oversight. That means there would be no way to prevent an outbreak were the strain to contaminate fruits or vegetables.”–DEMOCRACY NOW, Friday June 3. 2011
