Over the past three years, Mexican and US health authorities scoured 11 farms and packing houses in the Puebla region, where the cilantro is grown, harvested and processed.

Turns out, they came across “objectionable conditions” at eight sites. Five were tied to the outbreaks in the US that left hundreds of people sick.
American health officials are issuing a ban on some cilantro imported from Mexico after investigators tied a string of illnesses to fields that contaminated with human feces and toilet paper.

Didn't know the finns were dumb. I should just stop preaching here in America that Europeans are smart. Multiculturalism is a failed experiment. Stop pretending that all cultures are equal or else face a slow but sure destruction of your own.

Tagline
The Stream is a social media community with its own daily TV show on Al Jazeera English.
Introduction
The Stream is a new phenomenon – a web community with its own daily show on Al Jazeera. The Stream taps into the extraordinary potential of the increasing power of social networks to disseminate news. Individuals have now become an integral part of the news information network through their ability to publish information and share opinions on events as they take place. 

The viral nature of social networks allows for such information to spread and multiply rapidly. While these developments have the potential to generate more heat than light, to a broadcaster like Al Jazeera, they are also a huge opportunity to reach news in places and at levels until now impossible. 

The Stream is a super-aggregator of these online sources, seeking out both untold stories and new, ground level takes on stories in the mainstream.
