CDC Warns of 'Healthy' Food Outbreaks: Sprouts, Salads, Organic Shakes and Meals, Cucumbers

I've always thought organic foods were a scam.  They are not better tasting.  They are not better looking.  They do not offer better nutrition.  You're wasting your time and your money buying organic foods.
Ironically, all of the CDC’s outbreak warnings on its homepage are currently for items on the so-called “healthy” foods list.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is warning of four potentially fatal, multi-state outbreaks – all victimizing people who eat foods typically considered healthful:

Alfalfa Sprouts,
Organic Shake and Meal Products,
Packaged Salads, and
Cucumbers

Nine people in either Minnesota or Wisconsin who ate alfalfa sprouts have been diagnosed with the outbreak strain of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157 (STEC O157), which can cause hemolytic uremic syndrome, a potentially-fatal type of kidney failure. The CDC has linked the infections to sprouts produced by Jack & the Green Spouts.
