Strange Time for Veggies

Veggies keep getting hit it seems.  It is sad when Europe is trying to see how to solve the problem of E.coli.  The fall out has hit all farms in the EU.  Now the confidence in the farms are at stake.  The impact has a huge ripple effect.
  1. People are getting seriously sick and dying.
  2. People are not buying produce and veggies.
  3. The farms are losing money.
  4. The EU is then being impacted economically on the losses as well.
Here is a great link with several articles covering the subject.
