I noticed on TV they're breathlessly following a story about a guy with some treatment-resistent strain of tuberculosis, fresh back from a trip to Europe, who's now quarantined by the federal gov't. I've been distressed for quite a while because the local health department seemingly doesn't have a blanket policy requiring all persons who prepare food to be tested for TB. The newsmedia doesn't seem to get very worked up about that. There are more and more 3rd World types working behind the counter at fast-food places, public cafeterias, restaurants, etc, hereabouts...and I'm becoming damned ill-at-ease about it. Thing is, I've attended a lot of autopsies in connection with my job over the years. Listen to me, believe me when I tell you this: There's an uncomfortable percentage of those 3rd World types who are full of TB when they crack 'em open on the pathologist's table. Square biz. If anyone has any info that'd clear this up for me, I'd really appreciate hearing about it. I don't know why all food-handlers at Department of Health-licensed locations aren't mandated to be tested routinely for TB. As far as I can tell, the only food-service employees who are routinely tested for tuberculosis are the ones who work in school cafeterias. Sure makes me want to stop at a fast-food joint, or any other restaurant, where English is the "second language" on the back line...yeah, buddy.
