If you have ever woken up in the middle of the night panicked that you won’t make it to the bathroom in time, or heard a scream from your child and sat with them shaking over a garbage can for hours on end, you know how brutal food poisoning can be. It is not something you want anyone, even your worst enemy, to ever to have to go through. Avoid it at all costs.

Which makes it doubly maddening that the United States Department of Agriculture has been so irresponsibly slow in identifying the latest deadly antibiotic-resistant Salmonella outbreak, one that was first identified in MARCH. So far the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that the nasty Salmonella Heidelberg strain has killed one person and infected nearly 80. Those are just the ones we know about. Who knows how many people or children it has really sickened?
