Plastic bag ban would kill jobs and cause more illness

Re "Plastic bag ban makes sense for all of California" (Editorials, Nov. 14): This editorial tries to stick a plastic bag ban down the throats of Californians. Banning plastic bags would be a job killer for the companies and workers who manufacture the bags, and if the media successfully force this ban through statewide, we will have to use cloth bags that could cause disease through E. coli winding up on the fruits and vegetables. Californians would get sick from E. coli and other bacteria-related contamination on their food if plastic bags were banned statewide.
