Huge Peanut Butter Recall hits 18 states, here’s how to identify them…

Foodborne illness has been around for as long as humans have been eating food. Scientists believe typhoid fever from Salmonella may have been what killed Alexander the Great in 323 B.C.

President Zachary Taylor also is suspected to have died from bacteria in food or water he consumed at a Fourth of July celebration in 1850.

The U.S. had some food safety regulations as far back as the colonies, but the laws we have today about food inspection and reporting to the public didn’t start to take shape until the early 20th century.

If you read Upton Sinclair’s “The Jungle” and were grossed out by the descriptions of how meat was processed at the stockyards in Chicago, you weren’t alone. Then-President Theodore Roosevelt didn’t like what he read and helped push through two bills in 1906 that began the modern era of our food safety laws.
