One member of the Corn Allergy & Intolerance group on Facebook posted information on how to report adverse reactions or other problems with FDA-regulated products. For those of us who have allergies that are not top 8 allergens, it’s particularly important that we make these reports so that regulatory agencies can see the harm caused by the lack of complete labeling.

I’ve been on vacation this week, which for me is “food prep” week.  I don’t know if I’ve posted this link before for the National Center of Home Food Preservation, but if you’re dealing with canning stuff or freezing stuff to have safe food, check it out.  

I’ve been considering having my knives sharpened before I move, as I know where to get it done here in Concord — and here’s a good argument for getting your knives sharpened by a pro.

And I’ll leave you with a bit of my own personal geekiness — if you’re coming here, you’re well-aware of how food relates to health, and not in the standard “good food vs bad food” nonsensical formula. Almost all of our readers have food allergies or food sensitivities — or you cook for someone who does. But there are so many other factors, including where you live. The correlations between public health and land use are astounding, and I know a lot of people don’t realize this or don’t think about it. Here’s your chance to learn a bit more.

Have a great weekend everyone!
