The Canadian Food Inspection Agency's (CFIA) Cantaloupe Testing Program with Christine Shaker, Senior Program Officer and Irina Frenkel, Chief, Fresh Produce Safety.
The CFIA develops and delivers programs and services designed to protect Canadians from preventable food safety hazards, to ensure that food safety emergencies are effectively managed, and that the public is aware of--and contributes to--food safety.
On September 6, 2012, as part of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's (CFIA) routine testing of various food products, a study was released that found 100% of cantaloupes tested did not contain Salmonella or Shigella and were safe for human consumption. No follow-up activities were needed.
The CFIA analyzed 1,207 domestic and imported cantaloupe samples collected from Canadian retail stores. They included 895 samples from domestic and imported whole cantaloupes and 312 from imported fresh-cut, ready-to-eat cantaloupes. Because neither Salmonella nor Shigella was detected, all samples were classified as "satisfactory".

Linda B. James, "The Lady With The Moves" (www.TheLadyWithTheMoves.com) interviews Kat Wright, health, wellness and nutrition expert. We all want to eat well and serve healthy meals to our families, but that’s not easy to do. From the constant stream of ads for convenience foods to the confusing language on ingredients lists, it’s challenging to figure out which foods to buy. This shows uncovers the hazards lurking in the food we eat.
In the words of health, wellness and nutrition expert Kat Wright, “Food manufactures don’t care what happens to your health—their job is to sell food products. If you have a health problem as a result, that’s your problem, not theirs.” She will reveal: 7 toxic food ingredients found in many mass-produced foods. Which lunch meats are full of potent cancer causing chemicals called nitrosamines. How to avoid food-born illnesses like the recent listeria outbreak from cantaloupe. Soft drink and beverage companies are peddling drinks full of formaldehyde and formic acid. Why the FDA looks the other way when it comes to dangerous ingredients found in America’s food supply. Kat Wright is a respected wellness educator, speaker, author, nutritionist and naturopathic doctor with over 30 years experience in helping people live longer, healthier lives. Wright is the author of YOUR HEALTH IN YOUR HANDS and YOUR HEALTH TURNED ON. She is also producer and host of YOUR HEALTH IN THE KITCHEN cooking DVD, the CEO of an anti-aging skin care company and founder of the Avenues to Wellness Culinary Institute.
Interviewing our latest Beauty of the Week Lala Dickinson and talking current events.
Tonight is Tuesday and that means we're discussing, food. As you are probably aware, there has been another horrible situation with food, this time, listeria tainted cantaloupe. What is going on with our food supply? Have we become enough advanced in our knowledge that we simply have labels for food born pathogens? Or is there more tainted food in our food chain? Not only are we facing frightening headlines, but we are also looking at increasing prices. I have a sort of built in reference system. When we moved 6 years ago, we were buying all of our groceries at the store. The year of our move, I found myself at both ends of the state in each given week throughout the summer months, so I didn't plant a garden in 2005, and I got a real taste of the cost of living, that entire year. When there is no garden in the summer, there is nothing preserved for the winter. Now, I clearly remember, I could get everything we needed for a week for less than $100.00 without scrimping. Now, fast forward to 2011, six years later. I buy very little produce, seldom do we buy fruits or vegetables, unless it's simply something that doesn't grow around here. I am amazed at how little in my cart, still requires breaking a $100 bill.
Also, we might take note that in much of our so called data and stats, the cost of food isn't even included in the figures determining the level of inflation. One sixth of our population is on food stamps. How many more will soon have no choice?
There has to be another answer.

Killer Cravings are from foods full of artificial tastes that are contrived to stimulate 9,000 taste buds into sending pleasure signals to the brain. Like an addict demanding drugs, the body craves sugar, salt and fat. Foods like strawberries and bananas don't cause cravings. You never hear little voices in the back of your head saying, “eat, and eat cantaloupe”, because natural foods balance the body and physical cravings are caused by biochemical imbalance. Salt, saturated fat, refined starch and refined sugars cause cravings because they imbalance the body's chemistry and cause dependency on unnatural substances. In a desperate attempt to maintain homeostasis or chemical balance, the body demands the very thing that caused imbalance. Consumption of massive amounts of sugar, salt, caffeine or fried foods drastically affects homeostatic balance. Natural hunger becomes distorted as the body craves for the substances necessary for balance & powerful cravings override the body’s natural needs. The brain has 100 billion neurons and 100 trillion connectors for memory alone. Each brain cell is dependent on homeostatic balance to function properly. High doses of sugar, salt, fat and caffeine can cause imbalances in the brain’s normal chemistry. Natural foods assist homeostasis, supplying vitamins, minerals, soft fibers, cell salts and enzymes to assist the body in maintaining balance. In a balanced state, hunger is in relation to the body’s need for nutrition. Eat processed, fried & sugar-filled foods, and you crave salty and fatty foods that promise satisfaction but deliver artificial pleasure that never satisfies. We are using junk food to adjust our feelings through stimulating neurotransmitters that were designed by God to form healthy, natural dependencies on vegetables, fruits, nuts & grains.
