  •  Not because of Odwalla, but because of cider. (1+ / 0-)

    Ecoli outbreaks in a small family farm cider mill in the northeast did it. Deer poop and pee on dropped apples, even when washed, carried into the cider. Blame the deer, or the time honored practice of using dropped apples.

    Ecoli is fairly ubiquitous now, we can't be too careful. Most juice is UV pasteurized which doesn't throw the taste off (of cider) anyway.

    I agree that fresh juice tastes better.

      but there may have been others, I don't doubt. I also miss my fresh pomegranate berry juice I used to get at the farmer's market. Damn do I miss that stuff.

      •  I know, but the cider outbreak predated Odwalla (2+ / 0-)

        by years. Totally changed the industry.
