The 75 million who fall ill and the 5000 who die annually from food-borne illness are collateral damage when an error occurs and an overload of E. coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter or Listeria gets past the back door of a food factory.

I used to write these CD review wrap-ups on a quarterly basis, but now that The Reader has gone monthly I've pulled back to doing them just twice a year. As a result, there's a ton more recordings to consider.
