One person dying of food borne illness is ‘one too many’ – Mansour Samadpour interview on CNN Money

“People need to understand what they are eating, where it was grown. You buy a bag of lettuce, where was it grown? Is the product from California? Arizona? Came from south of the border somewhere? The country of origin of the food we buy is extremely important. Let’s say you’re looking to travel to a country, they tell you don’t eat salad, don’t drink the water. And then you find out that the salad you buy comes from there. Then you say, okay, what are they thinking? Anything grown out in a field will have some amount of microbial contamination. What the green industry is trying to do is remove as much of the contamination as possible, but that’s not universal.” – CNN Money
