    This is the season to buy from your local Farmer's Market. If you have the space, plant your own garden of summer vegetables--can / freeze.

    You hit the nail on the head. Slowly but surely, nearly everything we buy, whether processed or not, is contaminated, somehow :facepalm:

    Video: Fort Wayne biologist gives tips after rash of food recalls over Listeria



    ... 21Alive spoke with Dr. Elliot Blumenthal of IPFW who says that listeria is a contaminent that can get into anything grown in the soil.

    According to Dr. Blumenthal, when vegetables have not been properly washed before being frozen they can become contaminated by listeria.

    If you're not careful to keep them below freezing, the bacteria will continue to grow.

    "Keep frozen foods frozen until you're ready to use them, don't leave them out on the counter thawing at room temperature for a long time cause the bacteria will start to grow. Probably rather than using microwaves, put it in a steamer. steam is much hotter than boiling water as well and a steamer is probably healthier for you anyway," Associate Professor of Biology Dr. Elliot said ...

    A lot of times when folks give advice... it's not practical. I have a veggie garden growing. But I don't grow everything I want to eat because everything doesn't grow everywhere. I love bananas. But bananas don't grow where I live. Also.... nothing is ready to eat in my garden yet. So if I took the above mentioned advice, I'd starve
