Oh--I wish they would start giving Whoopi better info about the stories they want her to discuss. Her comments about the pistachio contamination with Salmonella were ignorant of the facts.
She kept wondering "why" and "how" the pistachios were contaminated and why they "couldn't just be washed."
Someone needs to tell her that the contamination comes from the soil when the workers eliminate in the fields and/or from animal contaminants--like cow elimination products--that get into the soil.
So the Samonella organisms are inside the pistachios--not on the outside. Washing won't do any good.
This was also true for the spinach Samonella contamination.
I don't like it when Whoopi sounds like she doesn't know what she's talking about.
She needs better researchers.
