Thank heavens there is no need to worry. The American Meat Institute said consumers can feel confident that their meat is safe.

Hi AttyWSW,

Thanks for the excellent post.

Re: The new study found more than half the samples contained Staphylococcus aureus, a bacteria that can make people sick. Worse, half of those contaminated samples had a form of staph that's resistant to at least three kinds of antibiotics.


It's amazing that we have not had more horrible problems with super bugs, coming from factory farms. Many BILLIONS of animals annually are raised, fed with antibiotics daily. How could we better breed bacteria antibiotic resistant?


The April Scientific American issue has the article "Our Big Pig Problem". It explains that it is not necessary for factory farms to feed antibiotics to the animals as part of the feed. Denmark made it illegal, and now the farms changed procedures a bit, and are MORE profitable without the antibiotics.
