FOOD INFORMATION.
How safe is our food supply?
Increasingly, the corporations that supply us with processed foods are unable to guarantee the safety of their ingredients. As a result, not just red meat and poultry, is now a potential carrier of pathogens, government and industry officials concede. As the drive to keep food costs down intensifies, most corporations do not even know who is supplying their ingredients, let alone if those suppliers are screening the items for microbes and other potential dangers.

Some concede that they cannot ensure the safety of items — from frozen vegetables to pizzas — and that they are shifting the burden of safety to the consumer. It seems the only time we know the products are unsafe, is when there is a problem, people get sick, and the product is recalled.

The Grocery Manufacturers Association has called for new safety initiatives.  They include new training and more food safety audits.  The grocers also want a new internet-based recall system to speed up the process of finding and removing recalled food products.

For information on receiving recalls by e-mail, or for other food safety facts, visit: www.inspection.gc.ca

Don’t just guess to tell when meat, poultry and seafood are done.  Instead, use a food thermometer to make sure foods have reached at least the following internal temperatures:
Steaks: 145 degrees F (medium rare)
Ground beef: 160 degrees F
Chicken breasts: 165 degrees F
Whole poultry: 165 degrees F
Pork: 160 degrees F
Fish: 145 degrees F

BAR MIXES
If you have teenagers, or in fact any adult, impress on them the risks of driving while intoxicated. Statistics demonstrate drunk drivers cause many fatal road accidents.

It should be known that like any other drug, addiction is a potential hazard.  Excess of alcohol will affect organs such as the brain, heart, and liver.

Trader Vic’s Rum Fizz
1 ½ ounces light Puerto Rican rum
1 ounce lemon juice
2 teaspoons bar sugar
1 egg
½ ounce cream soda
Grated orange peel
Shake all ingredients except orange peel in electric mixer (or in
shaker can with mixing glass) with ice cubes.  Strain into fizz glass.
Sprinkle with grated orange peel.

Fresh Fruit Punch
8 ounces apiece of orange juice, pineapple juice, and grapefruit
juice.
1 bottle ginger ale.  Sugar to taste.
Combine the juices with the sugar.  Stir until the sugar is
dissolved and refrigerate.  Add the ginger ale plus chunks of ice before serving.
