This morning I received the email that I pasted below. I’m doing this because IT MAKES ME MAD and because I don’t want this to happen to anyone, especially all of you special people that read my blog. It’s a shame that the world we live in has come to this and that we have to be careful of the food and products we buy but also careful of who we buy from. ARE YOU AS MAD AS I AM?????
