- Food Industry Insider Warns Of Contaminated Crops As A Result Of The East Palestine Environmental Disaster
by Michael, http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/
The horrific environmental disaster in East Palestine, Ohio has contaminated the air, the soil and the water in much of the region. So how much, if any, of the food that is grown in that part of the country will be safe to eat? I had not thought about that question too much until I received a very alarming phone call. One of the people that I spoke to during that phone call was a woman that I know personally. I have known her for years, and I have visited with her in her own living room, and so I can vouch for her honesty. She told me that her “son-in-law manages three organic food farms in California, Idaho, and Washington State”, and that he is “warning family and friends to get ready for severe food shortages starting this spring”. Apparently there are several factors that will cause food supplies to be tighter, and one of the biggest is the fact that the “Ohio spill has contaminated a lot of land and water”. Apparently there is a scramble “to find clean food” and her son-in-law is receiving lots of phone calls from buyers in the eastern half of the nation that want to buy what his farms are producing.
We will just have to wait and see if things will be as bad as this source is suggesting.
But we do know that some companies have already started to take action due to concerns about contamination. For example, one grocery chain has already removed bottled water from store shelves “because it was bottled 25 miles from the derailment”…:
