Not saying I agree with it , but on the other hand , when you use methods developed in the 1800’s or earlier , for pubic sale , its sometimes hard to meet , even the minimum of FDA standards . If it was for their own consumption , there would probably be much less of an issue . We forget , people in those days didnt live terribly long lives ……….for a reason . I understand modern processed food is junk , but the other way was not all that sanitary either . The key in this situation , is selling it to the public .
