Do You Know About These New Food Safety Regulations?

Steven Burton | Posted 05.27.2014 | Canada
Steven Burton

Self-policing has proven to be inadequate in the past as some food producers took an overly optimistic view of risk, dismissing (or unaware of) potential hazards to the extent that food safety was compromised.

My jaw was sore. The meat sweats were setting in. The implacable pace I had been setting didn't stop, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't waver. The only thing keeping my teeth moving was the dread that if I didn't finish, it would all be for nothing. I'm no dietician, but I doubt that's a good reason to eat a meal which you weren't sure on first glance would even fit inside you.

When I was told to that Detroit was on the agenda for cities being featured on Season 2 of Rebel Without A Kitchen I wasn't entirely sure how I felt about it.

These truffles grow closer to the surface than the more expensive black or white truffle that are both harvested in the autumn and into the New Year.

m I the only one who thinks that this new approach is taking things a bit too far in the Pandering-to-Children-World that we live in? Not only does it neglect to teach children about which foods are actually good and/or not bad for them, it has to be causing moms and dads a huge amount of extra effort.
