It is odd that all three networks chose to focus on Taco Bell's tainted onions, since the outbreak of e.coli food poisoning they caused is relatively small--fewer than 300 infected--and not yet lethal. CBS' John Blackstone took the opportunity to generalize about the food supply: "Modern distribution systems provide huge variety, attractive prices--and also disease." Blackstone called it the "long distance food chain" disconnected from local farms and local seasons.
