Like another Recall is what we need...

This time it's not a vaccine but something that we all consume....food. Remember the nationwide spinach broo haha?? Yes, there is another recall...this time canned green beans. Just what we need. NOT!! Let me quote the article in Yahoo News so as not to write the wrong information here:

New Era Canning Company said it was recalling 171 cases of GFS Fancy Blue Lake Cut Green Beans with the lot code 19H7FL. Each case contained six cans in 6-pound, 5-ounce sizes. The canned green beans were distributed to foodservice customers in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia, a company statement said. They were sold through GFS Marketplace stores in Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee. The beans may be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum, which can cause life-threatening illness or death, the company said. No illnesses have been reported to date.

How I wish I'm back in a place where we plant our own veggies so that we don't deal with all these "scare". It seems that in the past year or so, all they do is recall everything. From toys, to food to vaccines. What's next?
