Too often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, and earthquake cannot happen here. Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them. Those who smugly think these calamities will not happen, that they somehow will be set aside because of the righteousness of the Saints, are deceived and will rue the day they harbored such a delusion. - Ezra Taft Benson

Amazing new release from top-selling author Jeff Benedict, Professor of English at Southern Virginia University. 

Book opens eyes to the deadly E-Coli Outbreak that changed the way America Eats. It's the true story of what happened when E.Coli came to dinner in America and how it changed fast food.  Hundreds of children were sickened and four died.

"Painstakingly researched and gut-wrenchingly immediate, POISONED tells the story of a pivotal moment in American History, ....that graphically demonstrated the dangers of food-borne illness....."

A must-read for anyone interested in knowing about food safety, food poisoning, dangers of uncooked meat, the 1993 account of the 'Jack in the Box' outbreak and the industry's wake-up call. 

Benedict conducted over 250 interviews and poured over thousands of pages of documents to present this riveting account and recount the revolution of the way we must eat.
