The last couple of places in eastern Masachusetts that used to sell real cider, don't any longer. One farm manager told me he thought the whole e coli thing was a way to pressure local orchards. As an ex-graduate student in public health - I learned that there was never a confirmed case of sickness beyond the green apple twostep. Just a rural myth? People still buy hamburger at a grocery store, lettuce from a display that's misted with water, hot dogs, and Sara Lee turkey so what's the deal with cider?
