CBS News: ". . . plant linked to salmonella outbreak shut down over cockroaches":

January 9, 2014 - Cockroaches in a poultry plant, an "egregious unsanitary condition" indeed. But wait! How did this get from the first sighting in September, 2013 to this point of egregiousness in one of the largest and heavily inspected poultry processing plants in California? According to the report, this same plant was linked to a salmonella outbreak last year and supposedly drew intense scrutiny by USDA.

I am not at all surprised by this news. Are you? Much is happening in the marketplace to cause these kinds of situations. Suspension (a knee-jerk reaction) only generates a short-lived focus that soon shifts from one facility to another without solving the problem for the consumer. In spite of these momentary euphoria and boisterousness, the food safety assurance sea worldwide is losing life and drying up like the Aral Sea region.
