Other than the ground beef and Jimmy Dean products, and canned corn, discussed by Luther in her piece, other CDC multi-state food investigations include pork products, romaine lettuce from parts of California, chicken and turkey products, deli ham, shell eggs, dried coconut, pasta products, imported crab meat, raw sprouts and more.
To understand how much these recall events and CDC food illness investigations have increased, we look back in their archives to 2006 through 2018. In 2006 there were three listed, five in 2007, four in 20008, six in 2009, and ten in 2010. Each year since 2010, except 2017, saw no less than 10 or more CDC investigations listed, with 2017 seeing only eight, which makes the 24 listed for 2018 the largest increase in any single year.
Here is a 33-page PDF listing the recalls by brand name, product description, product code, package (type/size), package code (use by/sell by), and the distribution area by state.
The article over at the Organic Prepper asks "Why is our food supply suddenly so unsafe," and the SQ note associated with the link on his site, made me think we should explore that question more, as he highlights a number of possibilities, from possible food tampering, to deliberately keeping food from the market causing a lack of availability, to perhaps shifting food to underground bunkers or bases.
Let's explore the possibilities........
FOOD & PRODUCT TAMPERING
One of the first question in most minds would be "why would someone tamper with a product or our food?", and that is a question that unless one is mentally unstable, probably cannot fathom a reason for, yet, there are multiple examples of people doing exactly that.
In 2003 it was bottled water in Italy, where acetone, bleach or ammonia were injected under the caps. Also in 2006 a store employee mixed insecticide into ground beef, causing 111 people to fall ill with nicotine poisoning in Michigan. The employee was trying to get his supervisor into trouble.
The point here is there is ample evidence that product and food tampering occurs, with most cases remaining unsolved due to the nature of the crime.
The possibility of food tampering being behind some of these outbreaks and recalls is not coming from just "conspiracy theorists" either, as the FDA updated their "Food Tampering, An Extra Ounce of Caution" page in September 2018, stating that while deliberate tampering of food to cause major disease outbreaks is rare, particularly in the United States, "recent news events have focused attention on the increasing possibility of such tampering."
They also offer some tips on how to detect tampering of products at your local grocery store, in your home, and provide the information of how to contact the appropriate resources to report tampering.
FOOD SHORTAGES AND GEOENGINEERING
We have all seen via images and news reports, how fast grocery store shelves empty when a severe storm is impending, or after a disaster, from panic shoppers, but recent reports also show that some stores are looking more "empty," with increasing frequency. Over at Whole Foods, now owned by Amazon, people were complaining about a lack of items, such as strawberries, bananas or microgreens, and calling the meat and fish departments "pretty bare."
"I've gone back three times since. Today is the first day I've seen grapes, the first day I've seen chocolate croissants," said Murphy, 40. “They told me they're out of strawberries because of the Super Bowl, and I was thinking, 'Yes, strawberries are definitely in high demand for the Super Bowl.' "
Murphy is among the patrons who are leaving Whole Foods supermarkets disappointed when they encounter inventory that is anything but whole.
The problems are being traced to a change in Whole Foods’ supply chain more than a year ago, a system called “order-to-shelf" inventory management. The system was in place before the Amazon $13.7-billion acquisition in late August.
The system was intended to create more consistency in what is ordered, the chain says. Also, OTS was supposed to help reduce or eliminate the time that goods are kept in a store’s stockroom before hitting the aisles.
But it has led to shortages, and problems appear to be widespread, not confined to perishables like the meat and produce issues that Murphy encountered.
Between the retail apocalypse which is also hitting grocery stores, and the weather and/or geoengineering supposedly to counter "climate change," agricultural crops are also being endangered.
Many, to this day, still deny that geoengineering is being conducted, yet even the mainstream media has been reporting on it, with their spin about having to use these methods to save the planet, despite many experts still claiming that climate change is not solely due to man, but rather historical patterns.
But, I digress.
This is how the media is spinning the geoengineering now that they cannot hide the technology from people anymore, via PBS:
As Earth’s temperature steadily climbs and international action to curtail heat-trapping greenhouse gases falters, climate change poses such a dire threat that scientists are now seriously investigating geoengineering as a last-ditch attempt to cool the planet.
I am not going to debate the whole climate change argument, but I highlight that first paragraph to show that geoengineering is real, and again, not just to "tin foil hat" wearers.
In that article they admit that solar geoengineering to cool the planet would affect a number of critical crop yields, significantly, such as "global corn yields by an average of 9 percent, and soy, rice and wheat by 5 percent."
Seeing those results, it would be remiss to not question whether the food recalls, the foodborne illness outbreaks, could be a direct result of the current weather tampering.
Below is from Bloomberg, certainly not a "conspiracy" website, from September 2018:
Seven Silicon Valley entrepreneurs have purchased bunkers from Rising S Co. and planted them in New Zealand in the past two years, said Gary Lynch, the manufacturer’s general manager. At the first sign of an apocalypse — nuclear war, a killer germ, a French Revolution-style uprising targeting the 1 percent — the Californians plan to hop on a private jet and hunker down, he said.
Question: Where are they getting all their food to stockpile in all these bases and bunkers?
As part of the prepping community, most of us would hear if massive buyouts of prepping food suddenly stripped the market, and is it impossible to think that using the mindset of the Kissinger report, that the huge increase in food recalls could possible be redistributed from the masses to the elite, via the recalls, to supply those facilities? Freeze dry the food, just like survival food is, and some of it lasts up to 25 years.
If it is not impossible, that makes it possible, and something to consider.
There is definitely something strange going on in the increase of recalls, and we have to wonder why so many in 2018 and what is happening in the factories, distribution centers and plants, that so many millions of pounds of food is said to be contaminated? We are not talking a few processing plants or distribution centers, we are talking a large number of them throughout the country and abroad to effect so many brands and different types of foods.
Readers are encouraged to throw out their thoughts on why we are seeing this uptick in recalls across the U.S.
