There are more food recalls and alerts today due to e-coli concerns. Bagged salads from Ready Pac Foods have recalled their bag salads in 8 states including Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Oregon, Texas and Washington according to the FDA.
Raw Milk in California is another cause for E-coli concern recently. Federal law prohibits the sale of raw milk across state lines but does allow states to regulate its sale within their borders. California permits the retail sale of unpasteurized milk from only two licensed facilities. This case is just in California.

The latest case brought to 33 the number of confirmed E. coli infections attributed to the outbreak in that area, said Jacqueline Lapine, spokeswoman for the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. The CDC is now investigating to find the cause of this outbreak.
