... factory farmed chicken or any type of factory farmed meat. It's much more common than people think.

Read This List from the CDC before promoting that opinion too vigorously.

There are a lot of outbreaks and chicken and beef are not any more common culprits than greens and sprouts.

"The types of E. coli that can cause illness can be transmitted through contaminated water or food, or through contact with animals or people.

Prevention: To avoid E. coli infections, experts advise to thoroughly cook meat, avoid unpasteurized dairy products and juices, avoid swallowing water while swimming, and wash hands regularly."

Your link to the CDC pages do not support your claim.

Her link is a link listing a bunch of outbreaks. It supports her because it lists incidents from non-factory farm meats, like a number of outbreaks from spinach and such.

Your link annoys me because you either seem to forget to explain some major details. Or you are cherry-picking. As while your quote says avoid E. Coli by cooking meat thoroughly, your link is like Swirrly's link - it includes a number of incidents by non-factory farm sources. How do you push your argument without addressing stuff said in your own citation?

Too bad you choose to ignore the reality that the worst outbreak in the past 5 years was ... SPINACH!

Your ignorance and arrogance may cost you dearly, since orthorexia won't save you from contaminated produce (a growing category for e coli contamination according to the experts that I work with, and now responsible for more than half the mayhem).

Your blindness to reality does not support your continued health.

Calling all opinions: Will this incident will make food truck customers think twice this summer before eating from them? GO!

Not this risk-taker. Their food is delicious.

Probably best to avoid food trucks when it's hot out anyway.

Some of the worst problems aren't the trucks - they are restaurants that go to places like BJs and Costco and buy huge amounts of stuff, then transport it in the backs of trucks and vans without using coolers.

Trucks are an easy target, but Clover had issues with its kitchens and employees, not the trucks.

You have total confidence in food trucks? I don't. Food can spoil and go bad in those conditions regardless of how well the truck is cleaned and maintained.

Food borne illness can happen anywhere, in the same way that you could get shot anywhere. But just like you'd avoid a dark alley in a bad neighborhood at night, you're probably best to avoid a food truck preparing food in the middle of a hot summer day.
