In this module we explore food-borne diseases, microbiology, and epidemiology. Clearly they all come together in the context of food safety.
Review the above link (food recalls) and discuss your impressions about the number and type of recent food recalls in United States.
Include responses to questions like: Is this something to be alarmed about?
How widespread are the impacts of these recall? (In other words, do they just have a local impact, or are they regional or national?)
Do these include brands or types of food that you eat?
What other type of food recalls are more likely to impact you personally (provide an example from the news, or literature).
