    We have had E-coli outbreaks from farmworkers and produce employees not washing their hands.
    A few years ago a farm was cited for not having toilet or handwashing facilities in the fields.

    Fran is right. It could have been deliberate. Some people do horrible things.

    they say it could have been spayed by accident because when they wash the produce the water could have been contaminated.
    i believe that they are washed in big vats and then placed in air tight plastic where the ecoli would proliferate

    Perhaps this will persuade the liberterians that we need nationwide laws for toilets and hand hygene for farm workers. Oh. no... What's next... decent housing?

    It don't help that they put cow poop and chicken litter on their fields to help fertilize the ground. What do they not think that poop doesn't have ecoli in it.
