Controversies
In 1981, horse meat labeled as beef was discovered at a Foodmaker plant that supplied hamburger and taco meat to Jack in the Box. The meat was originally from Profreeze of Australia, and during their checks on location, the food inspectors discovered other shipments destined for the United States which included kangaroo meat.[13][14]

E. coli outbreak
Main article: 1993 Jack in the Box E. coli outbreak
In 1993, Jack in the Box suffered a major corporate crisis involving E. coli O157:H7 bacteria. Four children died of hemolytic uremic syndrome and 600 others were reported sick after eating undercooked patties contaminated with fecal material containing the bacteria at a location in Tacoma, Washington and other parts of the Pacific Northwest. The chain was faced with several lawsuits, each of which was quickly settled (but left the chain nearly bankrupt and losing customers). At the time, Washington state law required that hamburgers be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 155 °F (68 °C), the temperature necessary to kill E. coli bacteria, although the FDA requirement at that time was only 140 °F (60 °C), which was the temperature Jack in the Box cooked. After the incident, Jack in the Box mandated that in all nationwide locations, their hamburgers be cooked to at least 155 °F (68 °C).[15][16][17] Additionally, all meat products produced in the United States are required to comply with HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) regulations. Every company that produces meat products is required to have a HACCP plan that is followed continuously. Following the outbreak, Jack in the Box hired consultant Dave Theno to lead their food safety turn around. He worked with food safety experts from manufacturing companies and created a comprehensive program to test for bacteria in every food product used at Jack in the Box.




Holy crap. That is 80 tacos. That could KILL a man!!!! I ate 4 and I felt I wqas taking a big risk. LOL
yes, it's a lot of tacos! but there may be 8-11 guys eating though! a couple of them are pretty good sized fellows too!

I hear 7.62 Tokarev is one hell of a round. I also hear that you can buy a 9mm conversion barrel for the CZ-52 if you want to shoot 9mm.
Well, I did a little research on my CZ-52, and found out a few things.

First off, it was made by a military manufacturer as opposed to a civilian manufacturer. It was made in 1953 for the Czechoslovakian Army and has been arsenal refurbished at some point in it's life. There is also no obvious import marks that I could find, though there are some stamps near the right side of the muzzle I have not identified yet. One is CA. There are a few more, but they are pretty light and hard to make out. I think one may be NY?

That may be it, I'll have to take a close look. There are no numbers stamped on the gun like there would be on a newly imported gun. Is that a semi recent thing?

Got my first paycheck today after being off work for 4 months with an injured shoulder.

I paid a couple of bills and sent a money order off to some address in Texas that has something called a "supporting membership" to some sort of firearms forum. Anybody heard of such a thing?
