First the Lettuce…Now the TURKEY? CDC Issues New Warning

Maybe I’ll just stick to to the bourbon this year.

Thanksgiving

As we gather today to give thanks for the goodness in our lives, there will no doubt be a joke or two made at the expense of Romaine lettuce.

Earlier this week, the Centers for Disease Control issued a stark and frightening warning, telling Americans to refrain from eating any Romaine lettuce until further notice, and to thoroughly scrub any areas that they believe Romaine lettuce could have come in contact with in the home.  The culprit for the warning was an outbreak of a particularly nasty strain of E. Coli that has proven deadly in recent months.

In fact, yours truly had a tainted salad on Sunday and is just now getting to the point where actual food sounds appealing.  (Great timing, I know).

Now, as Americans gather and prepare the traditional Thanksgiving meal of turkey, stuffing, and all the fixings, the CDC is back to put another forkful of fear on the table.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is emphasizing safety in preparing this year’s Thanksgiving turkey in the wake of a salmonella outbreak this month concerning raw turkey products that sickened 164 people in 35 states.

About 63 people have been hospitalized and one death has been reported in California linked to the salmonella outbreak, according to the CDC.

“The outbreak strain has been identified in samples taken from raw turkey pet food, raw turkey products, and live turkeys,” the CDC reported.

The organization provided some pointers as well:

The CDC advises:

• Safely Thaw Your Turkey

Thaw turkeys in the refrigerator in a container, or in a leak-proof plastic bag in a sink of cold water that is changed every 30 minutes. When thawing a turkey in the microwave, follow the microwave oven manufacturer’s instructions. Never thaw your turkey by leaving it out on the counter. A thawing turkey must defrost at a safe temperature. When the turkey is left out at room temperature for more than two hours, its temperature becomes unsafe. Bacteria can grow rapidly in the “danger zone” between 40 degrees F and 140 degrees F.

• Safely Handle Your Turkey

Raw poultry can contaminate anything it touches with harmful bacteria. Follow the four steps to food safety – cook, clean, chill, and separate – to prevent the spread of bacteria to your food and family.

The CDC also warned that after the feast, bacteria could grow in foods left at room temperature and is the second most common bacterial cause of food poisoning. Leftovers should be stored at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or colder within two hours of serving.

Maybe I’ll just stick to to the bourbon this year.

WATCH: Biden Tells Crowd That Trump’s Strong Economy Is All Because of Obama – & HIM

Joe’s doing stand-up comedy, now?

Joe Biden is quite the card, even after all these years. Where he finds the marbles to tell a crowd of rallygoers that he and Barack Obama are responsible for the current thriving economy is anyone’s guess, but when you’re talking to the politically uninformed anything goes. Check this out… WATCH: Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Pitiful, Joe. Just pitiful. Late Senator John McCain (AZ) is a war hero who served his country with honor for the vast majority of his life. By refusing to leave his fellow soldiers behind during the Vietnam war and enduring endless amounts of torture, McCain put his true character on display. While it is evident that McCain swung violently left on certain issues (even refusing to repeal Obamacare shortly after Donald Trump became president), every American owes him a debt of gratitude. Let’s be honest: Trump was entirely wrong when he said of McCain in 2015, “I like people who weren’t captured.” That was pretty bad. McCain and Trump never saw eye-to-eye, prompting the senator’s outspoken daughter, Meghan, to constantly attack POTUS in defense of her father. Now, it looks like the McCain family will support former Biden over Trump come 2020. From Washington Examiner: The late Sen. John McCain’s family plans to support former Vice President Joe Biden’s White House bid, backing the Democrat not only in his party’s crowded primary race but also in a general election matchup with President Trump, the Washington Examiner has learned. In an extraordinary snub to Trump, who derided McCain’s Vietnam War service and mocked him…

WATCH: Bernie Proves He Doesn’t Have A Clue, Compares Teacher Salaries to Baseball Contracts

IS THIS REAL LIFE? It can’t be…

Okay, even for radically far-left Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders this one is a doozy. According to the 2020 presidential candidate, teachers can be paid as much as Major League Baseball players. Or something like that. Check this out… Self-confessed socialist candidate for president, Bernie Sanders, recently ripped pro-baseball because its players make more than teachers. But to many Americans, it looks like Bernie lacks any understanding about the economics of the matter. He tweeted: If we are a nation that can pay baseball players hundreds of millions of dollars, don’t tell me we can’t afford to pay teachers the salaries they deserve. https://twitter.com/BernieSanders/status/1129791583220588546?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129791583220588546&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F Just in case you don’t see the problem here, check out these reactions: Did I miss something or has the government started paying the baseball players, or is it still private entities? He is as dumb as his minions who are not bright enough to think for themselves. https://twitter.com/KevinKlynch41/status/1129949064265703425?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129949064265703425&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F As someone that covers sports business, let me say that Bernie is woefully off here on why the difference. As sad a commentary as this is, baseball is entertainment. It’s why there are multi-billion TV deals and 70M+ attend games in person. I thought Bernie understood economics. https://twitter.com/BizballMaury/status/1129840709320626176?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129840709320626176&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F There are 750 Major League Baseball players. In the world. 70 million fans voluntarily paid to watch MLB players perform in 2018. This is an apples and asteroids argument. https://twitter.com/RyanSchuiling/status/1129968264879017985?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1129968264879017985&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F I think teachers should be paid more, but you do understand players are only paid well because people are paying to go see them… right? I’m not gonna drop $80 to go see a 3rd grade teacher for 3hrs. https://twitter.com/FauxDucky/status/1130139959346782208?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1130139959346782208&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2019%2F05%2F19%2Fbernie-sanders-blasted-comparing-baseball-player-contracts-teacher-salaries%2F Baseball players are paid in the private sector, teachers are predominantly government employees. Perhaps we should privatize education and make it competitive so there is demand for exceptional teachers and…
