Avoid Raw Alfalfa Sprouts

Not only do we have to be cautious about the Swine Flu, which doubled its outbreak overnight from 20 infected persons in the US to 40, but we must avoid eating raw alfalfa sprouts.

"Officials have received 31 reports of illness associated with eating raw alfalfa sprouts in Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Utah and West Virginia." They are contaminated with a strain of salmonella

The contaminated sprouts were grown in several different states, which is leading people to believe there is a problem with the alfalfa seeds used to grow the sprouts.
