From the dumb-things-politicians-say file, Colorado Governor. John Hickenlooper told an audience gathered for the opening of the newly-crowned largest producer mozzarella cheese in the world that, “We’ve got a cutting edge company that’s doing a facility this size is pathogen free. It has a culture of making sure that every ounce of cheese that comes out thereof is absolutely safe. They’re never going to have a recall.”
Hickenlooper was referring to the new complex for Leprino Foods and was accompanied for the Commander Tom-style ribbon cutting by U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack.
Media was denied access inside the facility because Leprino claims proprietary practices and technologies.
Because it’s super-extra secret.
When the entire project is complete the plant will process six million pounds of milk for cheese production per day and employ up to 700 people.
File that in the check-on-later file.
