Roundy's Recall, Is Wis.Media Lazy Or What

From Green Bay Press and all over Wisconsin TV and print media. Roundy's Recall. 

Milwaukee-based Roundy's Supermarkets Inc. is recalling about 360 pounds of breaded chicken breast that may have been undercooked.

 The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the products were sold after Sept. 13 at deli counters in Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The agency says the product being recalled is no longer available for purchase, but consumers who already bought it should discard it.

Why has no one reported the stores affected are Pick n Save, Copps Food Centers , Rainbow Foods , Metro Markets or Mariano's Stores. There are people out there that's never seen a "Roundy's" Food Store. If this happened at Woodmans, Festival Foods or Piggly Wiggly the press would say "Woodmans, Festival Foods or Piggly Wiggly."

I am just thinking that there may be a lot of older people in the recall areas and when they hear Roundy's, it would go right over their heads and make nothing of it. They would just eat the affected recall item and go out and die. 

I know the media is just copying the press release from Roundy's but don't you think the media could have some common sense when it comes to reporting news and important information? To that I guess I will also blame Roundy's for not putting out a specific recall notice for it's stores. Maybe they planned it that way. 

If a life would ever be lost because of a lack of common sense, who would get the blame?  

The media should of reported the specific stores under the Roundy's label but were too lazy to get and report the whole story. The media is real good at cut and paste.. 


Update, let's give credit to the Manitowoc Herald Tomes Reporter for adding the stores involved in the recall.
