This is actually encouraging

A new survey by Consumer Reports magazine finds that more than 90% of those surveyed want their food to come with a “country of origin” label. One of the study’s co-authors said he was “shocked” by the response, attributing it to the recent food recalls for things like tainted...

- peanut butter
- bagged spinach
- green onions

And, while it doesn’t qualify as food – for most people, that is - there's also that little carcinogen-laced low-cost toothpaste to make you feel all warm and groggy.

Speaking of real food, we haven't made this yet, but, you know how I feel about the dark stuff, and I'm becoming a big fan of Melissa Clark's recipes, even though she does bear a scary resemblance to an SNL-era Laraine Newman (of whom, remarkably, I cannot find a picture from that time!).
