Listeriosis Up-Date…Is Our food really Safe???
I have reason to believe there Must be more action from our Government prior to us getting any foods.
Interesting After posting this on the 4th of sept, I see the government is moving quickly!!
TORONTO, Sept. 12 /CNW Telbec/ – Federal candidates across the country are being asked to make a
Commitment to Food Safety as part of a national campaign launched in Toronto this morning. “The outbreaks of listeriosis due to tainted food products have shaken the country’s confidence in our food protection system. The system is broken and needs fixing,” says Patty Ducharme, Executive Vice-President of the Public Service Alliance of Canada.
The campaign features a website – http://www.foodsafetyfirst.ca – which allows visitors to send a message to ask local candidates to take make a Commitment to Food Safety, a four-point action plan to fix the system. Radio, print and online ads will be used during the federal election to spread the word about
the campaign, as will events across the country.
“Our unions are launching this campaign now, because of the urgent need for action and political commitment on the issue of food safety before more Canadians lives are put at risk.” says Michèle Demers, President of the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada.
The government of Stephen Harper has steadily cut funding for food safety programs and shifted responsibility for safety assurance to the food companies themselves. According to current Treasury Board of Canada forecasts, funding for food safety programs will have declined by almost 30% from $359 million in 2006/07 to $254 million in 2010/11 under Mr. Harper’s watch.
Meanwhile, the government plans to expand industry self-policing of safety. A secret government document brought to light by a CFIA employee who was subsequently fired reveals plans to:
– “shift from full-time Canadian Food Inspection Agency meat inspection presence to an oversight role, allowing industry to implement food safety control programs and to manage key risks,” and “eliminate
federal delivery of provincial meat inspection programs” in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia.
“There are too few inspectors who spend too much time reviewing company generated reports in a system that relies too much on the food industry to police itself when it comes to safety,” says Agriculture Union President Bob Kingston, a food inspection supervisor on leave from the CFIA.
The campaign aims to drum up support among candidates and the federal parties for the following policies to improve food safety in Canada:
Hire 1000 additional inspectors and veterinarians to improve compliance
There are almost 800 federally regulated meat processing facilities scattered across Canada, many processing thousands of animals everyday. There are also thousands of cheese, produce and other food production facilities, as well as delis and other retail outlets, all of which are potential sources for
deadly food-borne bacteria. This territory is far too vast for the 1100 fully qualified process food inspectors and 230 meat hygiene veterinarians currently on staff. While the problem of food-borne illness is complex, one dimension of the problem is clear: our food inspectors are too few and spread too thinly.
For example, the inspector responsible for the Maple Leaf plant which was the source of tainted meat in the latest food-borne bacterial outbreak also is responsible for six other facilities. In order to ensure companies follow food safety regulations we simply need more inspectors.
Place an immediate moratorium on industry self-policing policies
Under changes introduced on March 31st this year, including at Maple Leaf Foods in Toronto, meat inspectors are now directly supervising from the plant floor only 25% of the time. The rest of the time, federal meat inspectors review company generated reports. This reality falls far short of the target
for inspectors to spend half their time inspecting hands-on under the new “Compliance Verification System”. Beyond meat processing, industry self-policing has been extended to poultry; monitoring the health of birds was transferred from inspectors to the private sector in the fall of 2007.
Plans the Conservative government has approved but not entirely implemented will give industry more self-policing powers when it comes to safety. The Compliance Verification System, the Poultry Rejection Program and future self-policing plans should be put on hold.
Remove obstacles preventing CFIA inspectors & vets from taking immediate Action
CFIA inspectors are discouraged from taking immediate action when serious health problems arise. Instead, they are strongly encouraged to give the offending company a “Corrective Action Request” which states the nature of the problem and gives the company up to 60 days to address it. The theory of immediate action of the part of inspectors becomes more remote because under the “Compliance Verification System” inspectors spend 75% of their time at the plant reviewing company-generated reports, instead of inspecting facilities.
This approach is part and parcel of the move toward industry self-policing when it comes to safety.
Restore the system of public audit reports which were cancelled under pressure from the meat industry
For 20 years, government inspectors reported and ranked the meat processing facilities they inspected. Under pressure from an industry lobby group called the Canadian Meat Council which complained about the bad press these reports created when obtained by reporters, the federal government cancelled the practice soon after Stephen Harper took office. Canadians need to know which companies are meeting safety standards and which companies are not and the public audit system should be restored.

They have failed at protecting our foods, Thanks Harris GOV!
– The average age of confirmed cases of Listeriosis is 77.
– Almost all confirmed cases with complete information live in an institution or were hospitalized prior to the onset of the illness.
One confirmed case was not hospitalized or in an institution prior to the onset of the illness, and a small number of confirmed cases have information pending.
– The incubation period for Listeriosis is from three to 70 days with an average incubation period of three weeks.
– Listeriosis is a reportable disease under Ontario Regulation 569 of the Health Protection and Promotion Act.
No. Total cases No. confirmed cases No. cases under as of Sept. 3, investigation ------------------------------------------------------------- 37 29 8 ------------------------------------------------------------- No. deaths among No. deaths where listeriosis No. deaths where confirmed cases was an underlying cause is or contributing cause undetermined ------------------------------------------------------------- 15 11 4 ------------------------------------------------------------- Is this really the Numbers? Does this really reflect how many have died? Why is it killing People? Has this stuff been tested? Where does it really come from? Can it be recreated in a lab? This is what I would research for my kids health, I would not expect any less from MY TAX PAYING DOLLARS!!

I don’t want to “again” post the Executive Orders that were created by John F. Kennedy, and passed into law by our other Catholic president, William J. Clinton. But for a quick run down this is what they entail. (If you want to see them, click here) These executive orders declare that the United States Government can, and will seize all communications media, electric power, fuels, minerals, food supplies, farmland, farm equipment, personal cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, highways, seaports, water ways, health services, educational services, welfare services, postal services, banks, housing, railroads, and storage facilities. They will also round up as many American citizens as they wish for unpaid work forces under federal supervision and even split up families if they please. These laws are on the books as we speak.
What do you suppose will grant them the legal right do such things? Read Executive Order # 11501 which was placed under the list of orders I just summarized above. (By the way. This is happening in all countries. I am only reporting on the USA agenda)
|E.O. #11051 – Provides the Office of Emergency Planning (F.E.M.A.), complete authorization to put the above orders into effect in times of increased tension or economic or financial crisis.|
This is why we see our economy failing. They need it to collapse so they can enforce the Executive Orders. Or in laymen’s terms, enact martial law. Without it, the mark of Rome will remain forever out of reach. This is the exact same type of stranglehold Hitler had on his nation and the Jews before, what that Roman Catholic pawn termed, “a purifying of the races” began. This resulted in over six million dead.
These Executive Orders were put in place for a reason. When these laws were announced back in 1996 the economy was booming, and as sheeple usually do, they follow along with the herd thinking all is well. But in less then 12 years of passing these unjust laws, we now see the economy going from good to worse right before our eyes. What’s worse is those of us that research this know all of it could have been avoided by simply blowing the whistle on the men that caused it all. This is not something that happened by chance. This was purposely planned. But then that would mean we would be able to stop the prophecied end result now wouldn’t it? I am pleased to say, that won’t happen! Our God is very capable of exposing such an agenda with crystal clarity long before that day arrives. This is “one” of the reasons the enemy of souls is so focused on ridding the earth of real Christians as Revelation prophecies.
- Revelation 12:17, “And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
Not only do we expose Satan’s lies by keeping the Law of God as prophecy said in the last book of the bible true Christians will be doing right before the end. But it also declares we have the “testimony of Jesus Christ.” What is that you ask?
- Revelation 19:10, “…the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
The true Christians understand prophecy with uncanny ability because we have drawn nigh to Christ by worship, study, and obedience. We know today, what the Vatican is planning tomorrow, and that get’s their blood up. Usually we are just tagged “a cult” but the truth is, the REAL cult is the Roman Catholic church. Every sign attributed to a cult has been documented in this church yet most with power ignore this because of her political prowess. Since most people don’t read or trust Bibles, thanks mostly to the Vatican’s attack on the Word of God, they are none the wiser. So the Vatican plays the moral card and they all believe it.
- Revelation 13:3-4, “… all the world wondered after the beast. …Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” .”
So yes, they will do as they plan because it is prophecied to occur. These laws will help in forcing most of the world to follow Satan over Christ. Most of what the Executive Orders speak of won’t be long lived in that they will try to make society appear as if it’s moving along as normal. A false sense of security works wonders on large scales like this. Truth is, the bulk of the unjust laws will be focused on God’s people anyway. The wicked won’t realize much of what we see because of their prophecied blindness, as well as their willingness to accept the mark of the Roman beast. They will literally be “walking dead.” Without drawing nigh to Christ by studying His Word each day, they will be very easy prey.
- Amos 8:11, “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:”
Only those that understand prophecy will be wise to all that’s happening. The rest will be pawns in the hands of Satan, who will convince them to do all they can against us to ensure their livelihood is kept intact. Nice thing about being a Christian is that we can handle such trials with smiles. We have been trained by the Master. Jesus has already overcome the world and educated us on that fact. Our duty is to recruit as many for Heaven as we can. So even as Rome was unable to stop the forward flow of the Gospel in her first prophecied hellish reign by killing hundreds of millions, they will still be unsuccessful in their final reign thanks to the Latter Rain falling more abundantly.
Many false preachers are proclaiming a seven year tribulation, or 1000 years of peace for their flocks. They will easily be deceived into a false sense of security by clamoring to the preachers that tickle their ears. But the Loud Cry we proclaim that brings their sins to the forefront, which in turn causes us to become a threat to Rome’s agenda, will still cut some hearts for Christ. Yes, some of us Christians will have a hard row to hoe, but it’s so worth it. And again, the wicked may not even be aware how bad it is, because Jesus plainly said…
- Matthew 24:37-39, “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
Life won’t change much for them. In Noah’s day before the floods came they were doing as they did every other day of their lives without a care in the world. But like back then, today when the wicked proclaim, “…Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” -1 Thessalonians 5:3
Until the seventh plague comes, most of the wicked won’t be aware of the prophetic changes all around them. Scientists and false preachers have already been making up bogus scientific excuses for climatic changes and strange disasters already. And yes, the majority are falling for their lies as if they are Gospel truth. So no, they won’t realize the changes in their day to day lives. However, our lives will change for the better that great and dreadful day…
- 1 Corinthians 15:51-58, “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”
Its NOT God that causes BAD things to happen – but humans themselves.
America has turned away from God.
America was once a great nation – with many blessings.
America kicked God out of its school
Americans murdered their own babies
Agreed to every evil that is an abomination to God.
WHO ABANDONED WHO ?
Look around you, what do you see – GREED – CORRUPTION – FILTH – and every fowl thing.
See what is causing this plus how we really are from our creators eyes.
