Please know that I didn't need to see this news story. There was never a chance that I was going to get all crazy in the produce section and throw some sprouts into my cart. I'm not even sure what you're supposed to do with them anyway. Does anyone eat raw alfalfa sprouts? Or for that matter, does anyone eat them cooked?
Also, this is why I'm not really into the veggies. Every time I think that I'm going to start paying attention to my diet and start a healthy lifestyle...(yes, I occasionally have these thoughts, but I just start chanting: resist the veggies and flee) a recall notice starts crawling across the bottom of my TV screen saying the tomatoes, lettuce, onions or alfalfa is contaminated with salmonella.
So, if I'm going to take risks with my food products, rest assured, I'm going to risk it on a nitrate filled coney dog, Pancho's artery clogging cheese dip or a partially hydrogenated swiss cake roll. Because I don't want anyone to say at my funeral, "Yeah, she ate those alfalfa sprouts and died."
