Health department raids community picnic and destroys all food with bleach

Screen-Shot-2011-11-11-at-12.24.09-PMServes them right.  How dare they think they break bread with other human beings without the blessing of the government!  What’s more, Big Agra and Big Pharma has been almost entirely cut out of the profit circle on this.  Here were some of the violations:

We were told our food was unfit for consumption and demanded that we call off the event because:

Some of the prepared food packages did not have labels on them. (The code actually allows for this if it is to be consumed within 72 hours.)

Some of the meat was not USDA certified. (Did I mention that this was a farm to fork meal?)

Some of the food that was prepared in advance was not up to temperature at the time of inspection. (It was being prepared to be brought to proper temperature for serving when the inspection occurred.)

Even the vegetables prepared in advance had to be thrown out because they were cut and were then considered a “bio-hazard”.

We did not have receipts for our food. (Reminder! This food came from farms not from the supermarket! I have talked with several chefs who have said that in all their years cooking they have never been asked for receipts.)

This is the only article I can find on this story, so I assume that it is true.  If you find any additional corroboration, post the links int he comments below!
