Yep, pepper of all things!

This whole "processed" thing is backlashing terribly and it's increasingly important to heed advice of food experts like Michael Pollan and get back to locally grown, self-prepared foods.

Thanks for the information, Don. I have cut way, way back on ready to eat processed meat also. For me, it mostly about the sodium content and my high blood pressure.

I love to add pepper and that article suspects pepper as a possible carrier of the salmonella. THAT, I've never heard of!

I will admit to an old holdover food choice from my dedicated Atkins days: processed meats such as deli meat, salami, pepperoni. During the past few months as I have been trying to get down to a "normal" weight I have given all of those up and now only eat "real" and unprocessed (relatively) meats.

Today's news of a salmonella outbreak in Italian sausage had me SO RELIEVED that I have given up this kind of meat!

Here's the alert:

Perhaps this can be an incentive for any of you or those you know to consider doing the same...?
