I felt the second paragraph under "The Scare" sections of this article had to be deleted.

"Those two punctured grapes, discovered on March 12 in a shipment unloaded from the cargo ship Almeria Star in Philadelphia, forced millions of Americans to ask themselves, however fleetingly, whether to take a risk by eating. That the fruit at the salad bar, the peach in Johnny's lunch box, the raspberries in the refrigerator, could be poisonous turned the world upside down. Could the stuff of vitamin C and Cézanne's still lifes be hazardous?"

This part of the article did not read like an objective piece of writing, but more like a section from a poorly written American Propaganda speech. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MLRojas (talkcontribs) 13:31, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Uh? Propaganda speech? Propaganda for what? The message is relevant, though I agree the style of writing could be better. Wholesale deletion is inappropriate. Try to improve it, I suggest you read the references provided first. MrCleanOut (talk) 23:13, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
  • That's true. I will re write certain parts of it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MLRojas (talkcontribs) 19:14, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
