Last week, we told you that Italian-style meats were being linked to a Salmonella outbreak happening in Illinois, along with 16 other states. At the time, no brand name had been identified as being the source. Now, they have.
Hold on there, Mother Nature. I think I speak for most Illinoisans when I say it was bad enough dealing with deer ticks and the possibility of contracting Lyme Disease. Do we really need another blood-sucking, virus spreading, creepy-crawly here in Illinois?
Today is just not a good day for food news. First, we find out that there will very likely be a shortage of Thanksgiving Day turkeys, and now we're being told that Italian-style meats (which I love) are being linked to Salmonella outbreaks in 17 states, including Illinois.
