The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released reports detailing “significant deviations” from required contamination prevention practices at the two farms central to the ongoing egg recall.
The number of recalled eggs stands at around 550m, with 380m eggs recalled by Iowa-based Wright County Egg, after the operation was linked to a nationwide outbreak of salmonella enteriditis. The recall expanded to Hillandale Farms – another Iowa facility – a week later, which pulled a further 170m eggs from the market. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1,470 reported illnesses are likely to be associated with the outbreak.
The FDA said in a conference call with journalists on Monday that water that was used to wash eggs at Hillandale Farms had been found to be contaminated with a salmonella DNA fingerprint isolate matching the outbreak strain.
Among the agency’s other observations: “Outside access doors to manure pits were pushed out with the weight of manure, which was piled in some cases four to eight feet high”, “live and dead maggots too numerous to count” and “unsealed rodent holes”.

My Note: Can raw milk cheese be sold via mail order??? I thought it was illegal??
UPDATE: Tom sent me this link. It says that as long as its 60 days+ the pathogens (bacteria) should be "destroyed" – obviously, this cheese didn't pass the 60 day rule or the rule didn't work .
Morningland Dairy of Mountain View, Missouri, is recalling 68,957 pounds of cheese because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes and also has the potential to be contaminated with Staphylococcus aureus.

Women who have had breast cancer and are postmenopausal, overweight or obese have a greater risk of recurrence if they drink moderate amounts of alcohol, researchers say. However, researchers found that moderate alcohol consumption might decrease the risk of dying from some other causes.

I don't know about anyone else BUT that Burger King character gives me the creeps. BUT I also wanted to discuss the nutrition info on their products.
I just can't justify the calories, fat, etc. from the products below. People ask why do they sell these – the reason is NOT just their fault – they sell them because LOTS of people buy them. Trust me don't buy them – they won't sell them!! If you buy healthier choices – they will offer more healthier choices. Simple economics!!
Steakhouse XT™ Burger has 770 calories, 46 grams of fat (17 grams saturated fat), 1390 mg sodium and 10 grams sugar.
BK® Quad Stacker has 930 calories, 65 grams fat (28 grams saturated). 1740 mg sodium and 8 grams sugar.
They are now coming out with a "stuffed burger": cheese-on-the-inside stuffed burger: the Jalapeño Cheddar Stuffed XT. I am sure that is a low calorie product – NOT!!
