    Read Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle"....Some things are better left uneaten.

    Boars Head is usually exceptionally better than low cost deli meats....
    If they want the salami I ate back, i'll have to do #2 in a ziplock....

    "Is anything safe to eat anymore in this country?"

    Sadly, for the most part no. The animals raised for mass produced meat products sold in supermarkets are generally less healthy than animals raised on smaller farms. Large meat processing facilities are at higher risk for contamination because of the shear volume of (unhealthy) animals flowing through. Waste from these meat processing facilities then contaminants fruit/vegetable fields, which are also processed in large facilities, even further increasing the risk of cross contamination.

    As ambergail said, buy food from local providers. Even not-so-local providers are generally good if there's a real person to go with the product. Small food producers are infinitely more careful about the products they bring to market because they lose money if they're product makes someone sick. Food conglomerates don't care, a massive recall means they just lay off some poorly paid (probably undocumented) workers.

    thats what i was thinking Nancy. It is the most expensive... looks like its made by a cheaper company anyway, so might as well just by the cheaper stuff...since it seems to be the same.

    Well at least we all learned how to save a little money from this recall.

    And Boars Head, carried at Harris Teeter and I believe Lowe's as well, is quite expensive.
