Seems fair

Sainsbury’s, Iceland, Waitrose and Co-op urging customers not to eat list of products

Lists aren’t known for their nutritional value

  1. So Much For Subtlety

    A more unpleasant list of pre-prepared quasi-foods it would be hard to find. Although I do like the odd satay. Not that odd though.

    However, this one stands out;

    Co-operative Food is recalling Co-op Sliced Curly Kale because packs may contain thistle (spiky weeds).

    I wouldn’t have thought the Co-op’s customers would mind.

    ‘urging customers not to eat list of products’

    Urging: the act of strongly advising or encouraging someone to do a particular thing.

    These stores have no need or inclination to strongly advise.

    “Advising” works fine.

    Ol’ Lottie punching up the story. I’m impressed that it can distinguish between advising and strongly advising.

    Maybe chlorine washing ain’t a bad thing

    Chlorine washing does not help when badly paid and trained personnel do no clean the preparation machines as they should. Which is the main cause of Salmonella/E.Coli contaminations…

    Same for the Listeria contaminations… *That* one means more than one person working that line has a serious hygiene issue. And yes, I class people working in a HACCP environment not washing their hands after taking a dump as having “a severe problem with personal hygiene”.

    You can bathe the raw material in anything until it’s sterile… When things down the line arent… wellll…..

  5. “Chlorine washing does not help when badly paid and trained personnel do no clean the preparation machines as they should.”

    You have no fvcking idea what they are paid.

  6. Does chlorine washing kill viruses as well as bacteria? (genuine question)
    Because if it does We should never have shut down public swimming baths.

    As a side note, I wonder. if chlorination was a proposal instead of accepted practice would it be as controversial as fluoridation?

  7. The same issue killed off Raw Milk. Complaints about people getting ill from unpaseurised milk were never from drinking milk labelled as unpaseurised milk, but from drinking milk labelled as pasteurised where the pasteurisation had failed.

    My milkman gave up supplying Green Top milk as the additional costs in keeping the raw milk bottling plant inspected to greater standards than the pasteurising plant was a financial killer.

    +1 Hillarious as Kale should not be eaten raw due to spikey leaves – may damage oesphogous

    @philip

    Does chlorine washing kill viruses

    What is bleach? Question answered with Yes

    Even better is Hypochlorous acid (HOCL) which can be mist sprayed over everything, including humans. NHS/PHE refuse to use, labour intensive lengthy procedure better as excuse to stop ‘customers’ visiting
