Nearly Half of Meat 'Widely contaminated' with Staph, Study Finds


www.theepochtimes.com

n nearly half of meat in the U.S., a form of drug-resistant bacteria that could be harmful has been discovered, according to a new study published on Friday.

The bacteria in question is Staphylococcus aureus, a form of staph, which can cause a number of ailments in humans, according to Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) report.

The study, which was published Friday in the Clinical Infectious Diseases journal, examined 136 samples and eight brands of meat and poultry from 26 stores

A study found that nearly half of meat and poultry in the U.S is contaminated with a drug resistant form of staph. Researchers say that staph is normally in meat products but this kind of bacteria is highly-resistant toward most forms of drugs.

The bacteria is also likely from industrial-style farms.

Well... if you have a cut on your hand and handle the meat before its cooked, without gloves... then what?

They've built the cage with a border lock down and absolute submission required to fly (and soon increasingly other forms of transportation). They've put a prison spotlight on us - able to monitor our every move physically and electronically without warrant, or with a secret warrant. They've classified any information that shows they're crooks and liars for THEIR security and called it national security.

Now all they need is to dispose of us - radiation, food toxicity, and essentials scarcity should help. And dare not squirm, because as I said above, you're in the palm of their hands and you squish easily.

Well then I believe you'll run into a similar situation that Bruce Campbell had

There was an article in the Arizona Republic today. It didn't have much information other than this




"Is staph on meat more of an issue than staph on your doorknob or staph at your gym?" Smith said. "For consumers, unfortunately, we don't have a lot of answers at this point. We don't know how much of a risk it is."

The TGen paper suggests that the federal government should bolster its food-inspection processes to check for staph bacteria. Federal food-safety inspectors do not check for drug-resistant staph bacteria even though other types of drug-resistant bacteria are routinely screened.

Pew Charitable Trusts provided a $290,000 grant to TGen and Northern Arizona University to complete this study and future studies.

who touches meat with a cut hand?

anyone with common sense knows thats a no no.

a concern for people who likes their meat rare and medium rare

but not much of one for people who like it wiell done.

Head up guys - one of the "number of ailments in humans" staph can cause is flesh-eating disease. ...It gets inside you, and into your bones to cause flesh-eating disease to pop out in different parts of your body.

And guess what? Thanks to the "Cheeseburger Bill" - the FDA does NOT test for staph contamination.



These staph infections range from a simple boil to antibiotic-resistant infections to flesh-eating infections. The difference between all these is the strength of the infection, how deep it goes, how fast it spreads, and how treatable it is with antibiotics.




“The fact that drug-resistant S. aureus was so prevalent, and likely came from the food animals themselves, is troubling, and demands attention to how antibiotics are used in food-animal production today,” Dr. Price said.

TGen noted that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration does routine evaluations of meat and poultry for various types of contaminants. However, S. aureus is not one of them.


So even though the cattle and food production industries create and spread new and super-dangerous antibiotic resistant diseases - nothing's in place to stop it, AND they're protected from liability.

Kewl, huh?

if your really worried you can wash your meat down with a bleach wash...

just a cap full of bleach in a bucket of water... dunk our wipe on your meat and it should sanitize everything... not going to help the flavor much but your not gonna get sick as long as its thoroughly cooked afterward

You're kidding?!? Nothing to see here, move along now? …Trust me. It's waaayyy past personal hygeine. This is a full blown epidemic that's been spreading for years - we created it - and it's in our food supply. But it's not tested for or regulated - the FDA has NO jurisdiction.

Maybe you think we should wait til it's airborne?

MRSA, or what is commonly known as an antibiotic-resistant staph infection, is much more common than people think, according to ABC News, which reported figures that claim 2 million Americans carry the bacteria without symptoms of an infection.

Sometimes I wonder if the reason for all the corruption in the meat industry is so the elite can force a vegetarian lifestyle on us like they tried to do to serfs during the middle ages?

In the end inefficiency cost's more to society and the long term profits of corporations and private business enterprises.
