A bromate at the daddy crowd at school pickup yesterday sheepishly admitted that until two years ago, he thought the band Queen was from the U.S.
I asked him, where were the Beatles from?
Detroit, Michigan, Rock City USA (he was joking).
Regardless of where you’re from, Whole Foods still sucks at food safety.
The Detroit Health Department is investigating two cases of Hepatitis A in connection with the prepared foods section at the Whole Foods Market at 115 Mack Avenue in Detroit, officials said.
One case was diagnosed in an employee at the store who handles and prepared food at the store.
The second case was diagnosed in a Detroit resident who ate at the prepared foods section of the store.
It’s unclear how either case was contracted, officials said. It’s possible the second case might have been contracted from the food handler, health officials said.
The Detroit Health Department recommends anyone who ate prepared foods from the Whole Foods in Detroit between Oct. 6 and Oct. 12 to speak with a doctor.
“While it remains unclear exactly how either of these individuals contracted Hepatitis A, and we know that Whole Foods Market Detroit has a comprehensive food safety protocol, we want to do our best to protect our residents and those of surrounding communities who may have been exposed. Whole Foods has been nothing but cooperative throughout this process,” said Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, executive director and health officer at the Detroit Health Department.
