@LetendreDan @benjaminchapman Well, no endorsement for quality necessarily. But I'm sure it's very safe. @LetendreDan @benjaminchapman I would trust anything they sell. I've met those people. They are very tightly wound regarding food safety. @LetendreDan @benjaminchapman I think it means that lobster rolls are here

@marcoarment I'm with you on this one @dmoren The good news? For $79 Apple is going to "repair or replace". By which I think they mean replace. @dmoren My 55 pound pit mix dog flung me at the road.

@sanspoint so sorry, but I would hate for you to get sick. @sanspoint like I always say, it depends and it's complicated 😝 @sanspoint That said even with the acidic pH of tomato sauce, nine hours at 80°F is bad news. I wouldn't come over for dinner. 😬 @sanspoint if it was pathogen free at time zero, it would still be pathogen free because spontaneous generation doesn't happen. @sanspoint it depends, do you have any time and temperature data?If only nature would find a way to cover these oranges so we didn't need to waste so much plastic on them. https://t.co/00YECaHB4D
