Article: NYT, No Progress on Food Safety

Not to be complacently smug about it, but the recent scares with salmonella and nuts did not even raise one of our eyebrows at home. Knowing where most of our food comes from helps us keep a leveled head about this. I'd be interested to know how organic, locally sourced produce compares with industrial production (send me a link if you have seen a study). In light of the fact that dispersed, small-scale food production is one way to increase food safety it is worth examining this angle. The article is at NY Times.
