    to tell the bacteria they shouldn't start using your food as a carbon source just because you take it home to eat.

    there are billions of bacteria and other single celled organisms on all your food.  Yes, even if you irradiate it and kill them all, as soon as you open it up, more bacteria land on it and start consuming your food.  Mostly, people can tell the food is bad because the spoilage bacteria or mold make it pretty unappetising to us.  

    So it is the consumers responsibility, the manufacturers responsibility and the farmer's responsibility to keep the food as safe as possible.  And to not eat food that is stored or cooked incorrectly is part of the deal.

      NOT solely the citizens responsibility.
      & this relaxation in inspections/closing of facilities that do not comply is leaving more & more of that burden on citizens.
