@benjaminchapman @ShipLives a couple of early references on the topic cited here: http://t.co/YrMMLi5WGU@benjaminchapman Well, it took 2 for the almond board, so I'd give them two. t think Barfblog list a dozen walnuts incidents.
@kwarrine @benjaminchapman sprouters are a disorganized lot, without much money, and without a simple solution like pasteurization.@kwarrine @benjaminchapman The walnut people learn slower than the almond people. What's the right number of outbreaks before taking action?@benjaminchapman So, methinks 'tis a problem.@benjaminchapman Because the Almond Board are awesome and forward thinking. The Walnut Board? Maybe not so much.
@johnroderick So sorry John. I'm blame myself for not working hard enoughHey, everybody knows it’s been a great year for viruses, but if you haven’t tried this latest stomach flu you haven’t lived!
