If the little guy is too successful, Kraft buys them.
As long as consumers buy Kraft products, influenced by placement, price and advertising, there is nothing anyone can do about it, except eat Campbell's soups...
Campbells left Sacramento this year after many years of operating a large processing plant. Shame to see the jobs leave.

Hi: gbaglo... In the grand scheme of things...Kraft probably owns Campbell's too!!!
DeadEyeDan... Heinz is leaving Leamington Ontario and Kellog's is leaving London Ont. By not buying their products I should be right on my New Years resolution target to loose weight in 2014.

I would expect if all water is effectively filtered and or sanitized prior to entry in the closed system, the problem would not occur.

Yes, but my point was that we don't put the Canadian name in the style, like Brain alluded to.

Probably due to our influence on our kids, but they would not eat processed cheese either. Someone once told us that Cheese Whiz could never go bad, but after a couple years of hanging out in our fridge unused, it certainly did.

I know I am getting it on some burgers I buy, and I will willingly eat it if that is how it is made, I just MUCH prefer so many other kinds of cheese. I am not a fan of processed (for the sake of preservation) anything really. I know hot dogs won't kill me, but give me a good sausage any day.

When I was a kid, my mom bought the bricks of Velveeta, and put them on sandwiches. I don't recollect not wanting to eat it then.

Don't need to, I can just inhale the cheese packs from KD.

Hmmm... but a "hot dog" (or rather the tube of meat in it) is a sausage - a weiner (Vienna sausage) or Frankfurter (Frankfurt-style sausage). Yes it is typically cured (as are most kinds of sausage), although it is normally sold fully cooked. An all-sausage diet would be terrible, but some of any sausage seems reasonable; as with any food - or even water - understanding what you're actually getting is good.

True but eliminating that particular bacteria would require ultra filtration, reverse osmosis or a sustained oxidizing sanitation water treatment before it arrives at your local.

Maintaining your hot water tank set points (especially electric ones) at or above 60c/140f is best practice to reduce the risk of this particular bacteria in the water supply chain.

Just be aware that at that temperature you will get a 3rd degree burn in under 5 seconds. I was not aware that you could set the temp on our water heaters. I was under the impression that the temp settings were set at the factory.

Glad you mentioned that as everything I have read lately recommends 120F for water heaters to prevent serious burns, especially for families with children. It also saves quite a bit of energy over 140F.

Many Water Heaters Set Too High, Upping Burn Risk : Shots - Health News : NPR
The problem is most RV water heaters do not have adjustable water temperatures, and, because of the small tank volume, set the temperature high to extend the mixed temperature in the shower, etc. I know the tank temperature in my 17 is way too hot to use straight out of the faucet...
