Fecal Matter Found In Supermarket Beef!

August 25, 2015 2 min read

One of the most disturbing stories today comes from Consumer Reports, who has found feces in store-bought ground beef. Of the nearly 500 pounds of beef tested, 20% contained C. perfringens and 10% contained S. aureus. Both of these breeds of bacteria are harmful and cause serious cases of illness among consumers. Over 1 million people a year get stricken with this bacteria which results in vomiting, fever and severe cramping. Both strains are components of the intestinal tract, meaning they are the result of fecal matter being present in the meat. Annually, America consumes 4.6 billion pounds of beef. Since the bacteria can not be cooked out of the meat, what is a safe way to ensure you can still enjoy hamburgers and meatballs without the risk of food poisoning? canadian beef The study found that cattle raised on organic farms without the use of antibiotics had a staggeringly lower rate of bacteria than it's mainstream meat counterparts. "Our tests also show that these methods can produce ground beef that poses fewer public health risks." says Urvashi Rangan, Ph.D., executive director of the Center for Food Safety and Sustainability at Consumer Reports. Looking for labels that say "grass-fed organic" is the best way to reduce your risk of becoming sick. The U.S. meat industry has claimed in a statement that it's products are safe, and that it has become more vigilant about the dangers of meat manufacturing in the past 10 years. So it is up to you, the consumer, to be educated about food and make the right decisions at the supermarket. What are your thoughts? Has meat ever made you sick? Source: NY Daily News
