ATHOL -- Adams Farm slaughterhouse has recalled about 2,574 pounds of beef products that may have been contaminated with E. coli, the company's business manager confirmed yesterday.

The voluntary recall was initiated after the state Department of Public Health confirmed that a ground beef sample positive for E. coli was collected during an epidemiological investigation Friday. An illness somewhere in the state prompted the testing, according to state and federal health officials.

Following a gluten-free diet used to be a dreaded challenge faced only by people who had celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.

Wheat is a major source of gluten. Following a gluten-free diet used to be a dreaded challenge faced only by people who had celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. Now gluten-free products are easy to find and going gluten-free has become a diet option for anyone. But it's not always the best choice. If you're not careful about your food selections, a gluten-free diet may lack essential nutrients. Gluten proteins in wheat, rye and barley trigger an autoimmune response in people with celiac disease. Following a gluten-free diet relieves celiac-related symptoms. However, a medical professional should make such a diagnosis. Deciding to go gluten-free can be risky. You might not be as strict about avoiding sources and forms of gluten as you must be. If you have celiac disease, eating even a small amount of gluten damages your intestines, resulting in health problems throughout your body. Undiagnosed celiac disease also can increase your risk of osteoporosis and thyroid disease. If you experience bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, joint pain or a skin rash, consult your doctor.

Chuck, what do you think are the best ways to avoid GMOs when they aren't even labeled on food ingredients? - Curious in Connecticut

First, contact your governmental officials, and ask them to endorse or support legislation that requires food companies to start listing whether their products use GMOs. The Los Angeles Times reported that the Pew Center, Consumers Union and Harris Interactive polls have shown that the overwhelming majority of Americans would like to see genetically modified foods better regulated and labeled. At least 14 states have introduced legislation on genetically modified ingredient labeling, but most face government gridlock. So take action, and keep foods safe (non-genetically engineered) by contacting your state and federal representatives - as well as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and tell them to legislate that genetically modified ingredients be labeled on every package.

A blogger in North Carolina has been threatened with jail time for "practicing nutrition without a license" by writing about his experiences with diabetes and telling readers what types of food he was eating.

It was in January when the North Carolina Board of Dietetics and Nutrition told blogger Steve Cooksey, who writes at, that it was investigating him for providing nutrition care services without a license. Cooksey was accused of violating Chapter 90, Article 25 of the North Carolina General Statutes, which makes it a misdemeanor to "practice dietetics or nutrition" without state permission - a license. According to the law, "practicing" nutrition includes "assessing the nutritional needs of individuals and groups" and "providing nutrition counseling."

When you bite into a delicious pizza, succulent sandwich or luscious lamb chops, are you possibly eating food that has been sacrificed to idols?

"This is coming to a store near you. This is all over," says Biltz, who is especially concerned about restaurants serving halal meats. "At a restaurant, you're not going to know [if the food is halal] unless you ask," he said. "I think we need to be aware of these things because they don't want Christians to know because they just want to sell it and get it out there. ... A lot of people don't want you to know it's going all over the world. Christians are upset as they're finding out about this because Christians are saying, 'How come you didn't tell me?'"

What began as a medical mystery has now developed into a full-blown food allergy, as the effects of a series of mysterious tick bites are making doctors across Virginia scratch their heads.

The allergy concerns people throughout the Commonwealth who have been bitten by the Lone Star Tick. People who are affected have found themselves totally unable to consume red meat. That's something a large number of people don't think they could live without. "My life would be over if I couldn't eat red meat," Alexandria resident David Kudlow said. "If I couldn't have steak, I probably wouldn't want to live much longer."
