Contaminated pet food, poisoned toothpaste, tainted beer, and now another food alert: this time it’s sesame seeds which may contain salmonella sold in bulk in some stores in Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia. The stores include the reputable Sobey’s and A & P. If this keeps up, we’ll have to form neighbourhood food growing co-ops, as more and more of our food becomes contaminated or suspect. Same goes for our clothing and toiletries: we’ll have to make our own. Get back to basics, buy local, forego the exotic imports that we’ve grown so accustomed to. Back in the ‘old country’ during the height of the Cold War, we did just that. Yet we survived.
ALERT ISSUED FOR SESAME SEEDS SOLD IN BULK
People should not eat certain sesame seeds sold in bulk in some stores in Quebec, Ontario and Nova Scotia because they may be contaminated with salmonella, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has warned.
