Marler Blog Providing Commentary on Food Poisoning Outbreaks & Litigation

“Toxic Avenger” Really?

I have been called a lot of things (even I would not publish them on my own blog), but “Toxic Avenger” is a new one.  You need to pick up the latest WIRED Magazine to read it, but here is a teaser photograph:

I’m thinking about getting a costume like the guy in the movie “Kickass.”  Given that our government is seemingly less capable of protecting us from poisoned food, perhaps it is now a job for the “Toxic Avenger.”

    .DOCTOR WATSON I PRESUME KNOWS THE ANSWER BUT SHERLOCK HOMES KNOWS HOW TO ARRIVE AT THE SOLUTION…IT IS A MATTER OF APPLICATION AND AUDITING…ELEMENTARY MY DEAR WATSON.
    FOOD INDUSTRY AND THE REGULATORS…JUST DO IT !!!..
    .THE PUBLIC IS DYING FOR THE SQUEAL WHERE THE TOXIC AVENGER ALONG WITH BATMANS AND 007 TECHNICAL ASSISTANTS INVENT A CIMPOUND THAT WHEN USED IN ALL FOOD STUFS WILL TURN THEM GREEN WHEN METABOLIZED BY PATHOGENIC BACTERIA
    INSTEAD OF DYES BEING ADDED TO ENHANCE THE APPEARENCE OF CONSUMER PRODUCTS TO EXTEND THE VISIBLE SHELF LIFE… THE DYE IS NOW ADDED TO REVEAL THE ACTUAL SAFETY OF THE FOOD.
    MAY THE CRIME OF SELLING SLIME BE REVEALED
    STORES MARK DOWN THE PRICE OF PERISHABLES AS THEY NEAR THEIR SHELF LIFE……WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION !
    ONE SET OF ATTORNEYS ADVISE COMPANIES TO PROTECT THEIR LIABILITY AND ANOTHER SET OF ATTORNEYS FILE SUIT FOR THE CHANCE OF REBUTTAL
    MEANWHILE ,CONSUMERS CANNOT HANDLE THE TRUTH…THEY JUST GET SICK AND SOME DIE !
    FOLLOW THE MONEY…THE COST OF A DEFENSE AND THE COST OF SETTLEMENT AND PUNITIVE DAMAGES
    WHY NOT APPLY THAT COST TO THE ACT OF REGULATORY COMPLIANCE…FOOD SAFETY AUDITS AND THIRD PARTY TESTING
    THE TRUTH WILL KEEP YOU FREE OR SET YOU FREE NOT TO MENTION SAVE LIVES !
    FOOD SAFETY….CURRENTLY AN OXYMORON !!
    AT LEAST THE FINANCIAL INDUSTRY CALLED THEIR PRODUCTS SUB-PRIME AND NO-DOC
    WHAT IS NEXT AN INGREDIENT STATEMANT THAT INCLUDES..
    .”MAY CONTAIN ONE OR MORE PATHOGENIC ORGANISMS AND/OR TOXINS”
    AT LEAST THEIR IS NO FAILURE TO WARN !!!!!

    Thanks Bill. I needed a good laugh, and the mental image I had from the “Kickass” costume was priceless!
