Organic farm kills

Did you see that the source of the e. Coli outbreak in Europe was a German Organic Farm??  At last count about 30 dead and 3,000 ill.

A wag on the Small Dead Animals blog notes [h/t AT]:
"Organic food has thus killed more people than the Fukushima melt-down and the BP oil spill combined".
Oh dear...  But LOL* surely...

*[or RHV, for my French readers: rire à haute voix]

I don't mind organic; I even grow organic here in my Hong Kong home.
But there's no doubt a lot of it is a con and way overpriced.
