I have always dreamed about growing my own food and I really think that this is an admirable and extremely healthy tradition. I truly envy those people who have the abbility to grow their own food right at their backyard. Those families are really priviledged and I'd wish to have the same.
While I understand that these things are unforeseen and can happen even under the strictest food handling procedures, it makes me question what all is going into my body from foods purchased at the grocery store.

If time and area allowed, I would absolutely grow my own fruits and vegetables so that I know where the food I am feeding my family comes from.
No, recalls like the Listeria Fruit Recall do not make me want to grow my own food, because I do not think that I would do any better of a job.
