I wish we knew. If I had the lab available and the research dollars, there
are a few of us in Ansteorra who would love to do a study. We may never know
if they have been on site unless someone can remember.  Each county has
their own group. I do know that few years back Canton did come on site and
they require a permit for certain things. 

In Service to Ansteorra,
HL Aingeal Mac an Ghabhann

Salut cozyns,
So, in forty years of fighters drinking from squirt bottles, munching on
orange slices, how many foodborne outbreaks have we seen? How many events
have incurred inspections?
