  2. You know how funny it is when a recall happens to see all the product labels made the exact same way then you'll see people trashing the lesser priced items in favor of the more expensive "brand"!

  3. They sell some of that stuff here at Dollar General. Since lead poisoning is cumulative, at my age, I suspect that a bit here and there would not harm me. But for someone not 61 years old, it would be a good idea not to eat it knowingly.

  4. Timely report there, Bucko.
    The meat supply theoretically rotates about 31 days.

  6. We did a semester with the Oregon state Medical Examiner.
    We used spectral analysis at their labs on the Eww campus in Corvallis.
    .
    Besides all the nifty crime scenes, we worked other interesting projects...
    .
    A prospector brought canned food to check.
    We estimate the food was canned around 1870, about a century-and-a-half ago.
    .
    Compared to 2018 foods, our analysis showed much higher nutritive value in all the old foods across-the-board... probably a result of top-soil depletion and petroleum-based pesticides and fertilizers since the 1940s.
    .
    Unfortunately, the lids were sealed with a lead compound, contaminating the goods... and probably turning the old-time consumers into drooling door-stops.
