In Aug 2012, a Toronto Maple Leaf Foods (“the Company”) plant was confirmed as being involved in the outbreak of the food-borne illness, caused by the bacterium Listeria. A day later, Maple Leaf upgraded a precautionary recall of 23 of its products in previous week to all 220 packaged meats from the plant at the Bartor’s Road, which has been shut down. The company has estimated the recall will directly cost it at least $20 million, with further costs expected due to lost sales and reputation damage. Since the outbreak of Listeria bacterium, 22 people died and there were 57 total confirmed cases of illness caused by Listeria 1. Although the Listeria outbreak was described by the Company’s CEO as “the

An E. Coli outbreak was recently reported in sixteen states. The centers for disease control and prevention investigated the situation and found that chopped romaine lettuce grown in Yuma, Ariz was the source of the problem. The article states that “at least 53 people in 16 states”(Romo, 2018, p.1). have been affected. An amount of five people have already “developed a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome”(Romo, 2018, p.1). Also “The CDC said people in the previous outbreak were infected with a different bacterium, as determined through DNA tests”(Romo, 2018, p.1). So, they encourage people to stay away from “any pre-cut romaine lettuce from the region”(Romo, 2018, p.1). This outbreak has caused mild to severe symptoms, so it is important for public to abide by the CDC, while they strive to seek out a cure.
Labels on some bagged lettuce have a label on them that say their washing is superfluous. It’s hard to guarantee germfree produce since food poisoning outbreaks have been occurring. It hasn’t stopped salad-packaging companies distributors from attempting to get germfree crops. The salad industry consists of farmers who jump through costly and time-consuming hoops with the goal of barring potential germs carriers from a grower's field. The germ carriers consists of massive amounts of birds, frogs, slugs, deer, pigs, flies, and etc. These organisms have been linked to E.coli and Salmonella too. The main reason why these foods carry these germs is because of the ecosystem it is grown in. Cleaning them thoroughly won’t be the only thing that would stop these outbreaks but nurturing the ecosystem and developing a healthy farm environment. Since they are the ones that spread the bacteria it is better to prevent them from it. Overall, the main idea is in all of these food poisoning outbreaks is that we must not expect a risk free food supply chain. Instead, we should embrace the precautionary principle and assume they're
All business impact their community rather it be in positive or negative ways. If I were to open my own business in the Morgantown Area it would be a twenty-four hour diner, called The Dream Diner. The diner would offer healthier options compared to most fast food around the area. The diner would be affordable so it would benefit not only young people looking to save money but also older citizens and families.The Dream Diner’s overall goal is to benefit people and families who live in the Morgantown Area by being more affordable, serving healthier choices and hours of operation.
One of the recent outbreaks that startled people across America was the finding of Salmonella in tomatoes in restaurants. It is said that:

This is another example of how negligence can and has caused harm to the public by resistant bacteria entering into our food supply and causing major outbreaks of food poising in recent years (Arias & Murray, 2009). The spread of antibiotic resistant salmonella or E coli can be easily transferred to humans by consumption of meat, eggs, and dairy. Antibiotic-resistant E. coli can also contaminate produce by either run off from animal processing plants or from crops that are fertilized with manure (Khachatourians, 1998). Both MRSA and E. coli are examples of drug resistant bacterium that migrate between humans, animals, and the environment and are easily dispersed around the globe (Finley, et al., 2013). Finley, et al., (2013) states that in addition to reducing domestic and agricultural waste into the environment, there should also be improvements in sanitation as well as higher standards of our water supplies.
This outbreak was in many ways precedent setting. According to the Center for Disease Control in the US, this was one of the first major Listeria outbreak which could be attributed to Leafy greens. Listeria, in most cases is associated with deli meats, raw dairy products or seafood. The indication that the bacterium in question is slowly evolving to find new suitors for itself is scary enough, but not as scary as the actions taken by Dole Salads in this particular

Food poisoning is a typical occurrence across the globe as there have been headlines of refined establishments having incidents of food poisoning. There are many causal agents of the problem including E. Coli, Botulism, Norovirus, Listeria, Shigella, and Hepatitis. If the restaurant or any other food handling entity is responsible for food poisoning, affected customers do hold the right to sue these establishments on common theories such as strict liability, implied warranty and negligence. The compensation for food poisoning cases varies depending on the extremity of the health impact on the consumer (Oyarzabal & Bracker, 2011, p. 237). The more fatal cases of food poisoning have been known to lead to death. Food poisoning has dire consequences for both the customer and the restaurant. There are several laws ranging from federal, state to local put in place to regulate the issue. There is an apparent need for controlling food poisoning due to its adverse effects on people. One of the laws that have been effective in controlling food poisoning is the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in liaison with the Illinois Institute of Technology’s Institute for Food Safety and Health.
The Food and Drug Administration, United States Department of Agriculture and health departments all over the nation take food safety regulation seriously and are attempting to reduce foodborne diseases on a
Tranter et al. (1987) discussed that the spores of C. perfringens may be heat resistant, thus may survive some cooking conditions. Incidence of C. perfringens contamination is high as it is widely distributed in nature and has been recovered in all types of soil, human and animal intestine.
