Newman, Jesse (2015, May 8). FDA Dates Blue Bell Listeria to 2013. The Wall Street Journal, p. B7:
"Two years before ice-cream maker Blue Bell Creameries LP recalled all its frozen desserts from grocery stores, it had evidence of a deadly pathogen in one of its three processing plants, according to inspection reports released on Thursday by the FDA... the company neglected to improve its sanitary procedures [and] ... [failed] to adequately test for contamination in its Alabama facility"
Three deaths and multiple illnesses have been linked to this outbreak.
The company knew they had a problem but did not take adequate corrective action.
Consequently, people died.
This happens all the time and yet nothing changes.
The risks can be catastrophic for individuals and, at times, for entire societies.
