Greetings from Tink World!

I came across this article today. I know it’s old news, but it reminded me of why I don’t eat at said fast food chain. If you didn’t hear about it, here’s your chance.

The scary fact is that the USDA allows meats to be treated with ammonia and doesn’t require that it be included on a label. So, you have no way of knowing if the meat you are consuming has been washed in a dangerous substance.

I’m not sure if I’m more appalled by the USDA allowing the chemical to be used or that the meat being used in the burgers was unfit for human consumption until it was “washed” in ammonia. I think it should be required to include ammonia on the ingredients list of products bought in a store. We have a right to know what we are eating. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to knowingly or unknowingly consume ammonia.

As for markets, well, we are off all week. We do have deliveries to Athens and Augusta Locally Grown. Also, we’ll be delivering to Nature’s Garden Express this week. So, we will be busy. We just won’t be at markets.

I apologize for telling several customers that the Evans Towne Market would be open on Thursday. The managers informed me, at the end of last week’s market, that it would be closed this week. So, we’ll see you in Evans next week!

We hope you have a safe and wonderful Independence Day. Take some time to truly appreciate our freedoms. Freedom isn’t free. Some sacrificed all for our freedom.

Have a great week!
