Japan agriculture minister quits over tainted rice

"Japan's agriculture minister resigned Friday in a widening scandal over rice contaminated with mold and pesticide that was sold as food for thousands of people, including schoolchildren and nursing home patients."

Resigned voluntarily.

Just sayin', Gerry.

Hey, as some comedian once said, rice is great when you want to eat a thousand of something. Yuk yuk.
Maybe the Japanese minister should have tried that one...
Seriously, though, with the milk scandal in China and our own meat scandal and nowthe rice scandal in Japan, the industrial food industry seems to be collapsing all over.
