As part of our year-end celebration, Gut Check is highlighting the people, places and things that have made the blog's first year (well, seven months, actually, but who's counting?) so much fun. There are five nominees for the inaugural Gut Check Thing of the Year award. I'll announce the winner on Friday.

Pros: In a year in which food safety dominated the headlines, nothing is a better representative of the risks inherent in the system that produces so much of what we eat.

Cons: I mean, it's E. coli. It could kill you, man.
