The Koch Brothers, et al.
Picture credit: Unknown
For the past few days, chicken and what evil may be lurking in it, has been on the news here quite a bit.
Can you guess who owns the producers of these chicken products that are being recalled?
That would be the Koch Brothers, et al.
Food safety should be everyone’s top priority in this and every Country and selling and/or eating contaminated food is just crazy, when the whole world is totally wired and connected right now.
This was not the Koch Brother’s first brush with either bad food, or trouble at their Plants, as they have had issues several times in the past few years, links to these stories are below.
One of the stories that came up while looking for more about this chicken recall, was not about a recall at all, but about a raid on one of the Koch Plants.
It seems that a few years ago, an Ohio plant was raided and 160 illegal immigrants were taken into custody by ICE or the Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
This same Plant had been under surveillance for two years by their agents before the raid.
I am not quite sure, but don’t the Koch Brother’s belong to and give quite generous financial support to a political party that is highly opposed to any/all illegal immigrants in this country?
But for now, if you have any of the above mentioned products in your freezer, please protect yourself and your family, dispose of them properly, or follow the directions at the USDA website.
Also listed below is a link to the USDA for Recalls, it would be good for you to check it as often as possible.
I have always been a great believer in Karma, but in the case of the Koch Brothers, I fear that they may outlive us all and never meet theirs.
