>According to this Yahoo! News article, there were 943 cases of salmonella poisoning reported nationwide since mid-April. Is this really cause for alarm?
About 43,000 people died in traffic accidents in 2005 and you don’t see everyone panicking about the safety of the roads or vehicles. Food safety is an important issue, but this issue is being mishandled by the news media. It just seems to me that they are making mountains out of molehills in the salmonella thing.
