39% Of Bagged Salad Is Gross, Some Has Poop ?~!!

Food Safety and Handling for Consumers

Superforce stumbled upon an article that we wish to share with the world, in order to raise awareness of a growing problem, right in our own backyard.

We obtained this information, through The Consumerist, and here is the story, with By Ben Popken on February 25, 2010 3:55 PM

As we told you earlier this month, sister pub Consumer Reports tested 208 bagged salads and found 39% had excessive bacteria, including fecal contamination. That means there’s poop in the greens. And now there’s something you can do about it.

Consumer Reports tested for total coliforms and other bacteria including enterococcus. According to industry experts, 10,000 or more colony forming units per gram (CFU/g) is excessive. The tests of 16 different brands had 39% exceeded that level for total coliforms, and 23% for enterococcus.

Hate spinach? Bacteria doesn’t. Many of the unacceptable packages contained spinach and were within 1-5 days of their use-by date. Bag vs clamshell, organic vs non, baby greens or no baby greens, made no difference. And packages that were 5-8 days until their use-by date fared better.

Even if the package says super-duper-washed, you should still wash them by hand. Or, better yet, just buy your salad elements separately, wash them, and chop them.

The big problem is the FDA hasn’t set limits for how much poop or other bacteria can be in bagged salad. Tell ’em to get crackin’ by signing this petition.

Whale Kills Trainer at Sea World Orlando Video

Killer Whales of Orlando Sea World

ORLANDO, Fla. —  Trainers will continue working with a killer whale that grabbed one of their colleagues and dragged her underwater, killing her, but SeaWorld said Thursday it is reviewing its procedures after the attack.

People lined up to get into the park a day after the whale named Tilikum killed veteran trainer Dawn Brancheau as a horrified audience watched. Tilikum had been involved in two previous deaths, including a Canadian trainer dragged under water by him and two others whales in 1991.

Killer whale shows are suspended indefinitely in Orlando and at the park’s San Diego location.

“We have every intention of continuing to interact with this animal, though the procedures for working with him will change,” SeaWorld said in a post on its blog.

Chuck Tompkins, who is in charge of training at all SeaWorld parks, said Thursday that Tilikum will not be isolated from the Orlando location’s seven other whales. Tilikum fathered some of them and will continue mating with others.

BEEFING UP AN AD ON CRAIGSLIST

19 02 2010

Make your craigslist ad something somebody wants, first of all!  Take the example below for example, which I’m sure has to appeal to someone out there.  But, notice the interesting expression and truth behind it, regardless of how vulgar, annoying, funny, or insulting you find it.

Even if the author of that ad was doing it for personal entertainment purposes, you got to admit, it’s still funny, and there is SOMETHING we can learn from it. The lesson learned is:

If anything, a blunt capturing ad, goes a long way in advertising.

Two Chicks and One Pussy

Two chicks and one pussy.

Yes this is yet another crack at fancy wordplay.

Apparently, these keywords are in the top 100 search results of search engines.  Recent statistical research conducted by Newsvine of over ten Top Search Engines and High volume  traffic search sites is astounding.  The data collected states that over 50% of search queries are pornographically-related.

A Girl and A Big Weiner

18 02 2010

Ahhh so this is what people search for, eh?  Needless to say, the idea is genius.  A lady and a sausage, a girl and a big hot dog.  No matter how you say it, it’s poetic, isn’t it.  Lol.

Ok, enough!  Here’s how this idea really started.

This came to me one day when the Oscar Meyer Weiner mobile was in town, and an associate saw it at a local gas station in Koreatown S. LA, while a girl was buffing the hood.

“Look, a girl shine that big ass weiner.” LOL

Thanks?
