That may be so, but do you want to risk your life? It is axiomatic that when it comes to awards it is cheaper for a company to kill you than to maim you for life. (And yes, I am a lawyer)

As I took care of my elderly father for years and am still taking care of my elderly mother, I have learned it is better to be safe than sorry. I have always been as careful as I can with regards to the foodstuffs that I bring into the house.

Even the local Chinese foodmarket owners are upset and uptight about what has been going on. They don't want to sell tainted merchandise but there are products that the community wants and can't get here otherwise. There have been stories in the local paper about this. Our local Chinese Foodmarket owners have been doing their best staying on top of the situation and have done their best not to sell tainted items.
