OK, so I did my obligatory twelve days of Christmas list. 

So, what about the top ten food safety stories of 2008?  Or, the top ten food safety challenges of 2009?  Because I really need to get back to my legal work of suing wayward companies, I thought I would start off with a contest for the top ten for both 2008 stories and 2009 challenges.  The winners will get a fluffy microbe or a t-shirt from Giant Microbes (where I do all my holiday shopping).  Feel free to comment below or email me directly at bmarler@marlerclark.com.
