Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Gotta love Europe!  THIS is a food scandal!?  

In the US it's rogue e coli (the kind that makes you very sick and sometimes kills you) in green vegetables.  

Oh, yes, it is being "investigated."  No one is saying how e coli gets into green vegetables since there is no normal way for that to happen.  (Maybe they are irrigating the crops with raw sewage from slaughter-houses.)

We haven't exactly done away with food labelling.  But the label does not have to be true.  Does away with all that messy "cheating."  

The Fates are kind.

The E Coli problem could happen here. We had mad cow disease, remember?

The interesting thing is that the first (I think) E Coli case in America was with organic spinach grown in California. There was certainly something organic being sprayed around there...
