Now this is serious

I have lived through some troubled times, and seen some scary headlines in my day. But in all my years, nothing made my blood run cold like the headline I saw this evening as I came in:

Cadbury’s recalls over 1 million chocolate bars.

As I have mentioned before, I am a traditionally built lady, as Alexander McCall Smith would say, and prone to the odd square of chocolate. It seems that Cadbury’s quality control found traces of salmonella in the chocolate, but that they are satisfied now that the problem is under control. While I would be inclined to take my chances, it is a great relief to know the good people at my favourite factory have things back in order. Phew!
