Some Kind of Shit

AKMA warns of bags and dog poo and a bacteria no one wants named after them. April Fools? Sounds too believable.
Further analysis revealed that among the samples in the test, not only were there the expected black poopons and white poopons, but a third and rarer bacterium with some characteristics of each. This third sort of contaminant has a tighter structure that enables it to pass through the thinner plastic bags that some dog owners use — the bag that protects the Sunday New York Times, for instance, or fresh produce bags, especially the semi-porous green bags often used at up-market organic grocers.

Moral of the story: Use Teflon.
