The "Health" department raids a community picnic and demands that all food be destroyed with bleach.

Because this was a gathering of people invited to our farm for dinner, I had no idea that the Health Department would become involved. I received a phone call from them two days before the event informing me that because this was a “public event” (I would like to know what is the definition of “public” and “private”) we would be required to apply for a “special use permit.” If we did not do so immediately, we would be charged a ridiculous fine. Stunned, we immediately complied.
It's hard to say what the rest of the story is here, if there is a rest of the story, but to hear these people tell it, they were out and out terrorized by the Health Department employees.
