You can always buy local from small producers. I won't buy ground meat at the super market but I do buy beef from a small local farm and grind it myself for burgers. Same with pork for sausage. Mass producers of food don't have your best interest in mind.

Your not kidding they don't have our best interest in mind. I have a local farmer right down the street, you can bet I will be buying a lot of veggies there this summer, they have the best corn, I will however ask where they get the seeds..

This Monsanto company is going to kill us all, what they do to the farmers is just plain wrong.. I hope my guy is not affected..

Hey, parts are parts & pieces are pieces, better living thru chemistry. Its hard to believe that more people don`t know where our food comes from. If it don`t kill you it will only make you stronger, Fred might be the only other one here that would know the pure joy of eating a 30 some odd year old can of scrambled eggs left over from Korea. A B-1-A C-ration box was worth fighting for, it had the can of fruit in it. The bottom line is profit.

Yeah Profit, well I'll be very picky about what I buy from now on, we have Amish chicken here and they don't do what others do , like what was showed in the video, I'll pay more for that. I vote with my dollar and have been doing so for years.

Here's an appetizing thought - 11 of the mall food courts recently visited in the DC/Northern VA area each had 11 major health violations. The health officials only visited 11 food courts but 11 out of 11 is not good; it certainly doesn't encourage me to visit any food court. These shops included mom and pop places as well as national franchises.

It got me to think so now I take a good around before I order. :D You'd be amazed at what I've seen just by being aware - gross. There was a Waffle House that had to have an inch of greasy dust with bite sized "crumbs" under the cooking wall. I didn't see any mice or roaches but they had to be there. Even MacDonalds isn't safe, I found one that had algae growing in the overfull tray at the drink machine. Just plan gross! If they weren't taking care of that little thing what else weren't they taking care of? With that cheery thought enjoy your breakfast and have a great day. Lisa

Lisa, I`m wondering if you took the time to report what you saw, my wife & I have got into the habit of getting on line or getting a phone no. to call. We also do the same if the server & or service is excellent & the place is spotless. We normally get a quick thank you for making them aware, at one chain we got a rather nasty call from a store manager which we followed up with a formal complaint to both the home office & health dept., from which we got an invitation to return & see how the new manager has turned the place around. The health dept. has been reduced in most areas if not all & just don`t have the manpower & or sometimes just look the other way, if they get a complaint they have to inspect within a certain time frame according to what the condition was. Most of the time they welcome a honest opinion so that they can make the store more diserable.

I know that most of the owner/operators are looking for feedback but whether or not I call depends on whether or not I'm passing through or see something disgusting around home here. I prefer to pull the manager aside to compliment a good server on the spot. That way I know the manager has heard the message. I've gotten good results with speaking out. One time while in NYC, the entire table was given the meal free when I complained about the service. I was willing to pay for the food - it was excellent - but when they wanted to stick 18% on top for lousy service, I'd had enough and the manager agreed. However, even after speaking up I'm reluctant to return to the restaurant in question; there are just too many questions running through my mind. Have a great day. Lisa

I do the same with the locals, speaking to the manager/owner, as I always say you only get one time to make a first impression.

You'd be surprised. We were at a local farm picking strawberries and I spotted sever bags of Monsanto corn in his barn. Not sure if it was animal feed or for planting but I don't think we'll be going back there.

And not to be gross, but I had given up eating corn because I couldn't digest it. It was a complete waste of time.

This year, we planted our own garden and what do you know? No more digestion problems!
