California lettuce recalled over listeria concerns | Reuters

I'm speaking today for the Rachel Carson Foundation about sustainability and food. I believe that an important route to sustain healthy foods for ourselves is to create a system that controls this kind of outbreak better.

For example, if we had more local farms, and fewer mega farms who distribute billions of bushels across the US, then any infestation of bacteria will have a limited penetration into the population, at best.

Also, when the producers are local, and you know who they are, then you are not some nameless, faceless consumer to them. Even though modest, that introduces an added degree of accountability on their part.
