MRSA found in dairy cattle should I be paranoid?

A recent study is saying that dairy cattle in the UK may be carrying a new strain of MRSA. My initial reaction to this was worrying since I immediately considered it linked to the cucumber crisis and a possible attack on our food chain.

However, this is nothing but speculation on my part and hopefully this is not actually that groundbreaking and indeed nothing to worry about.

What do you guys think of this? am I crazy to draw these conclusions?!

No, you should not be worried. Just cook you meat thoroughly and wash your hands. Personally, I'm willing to risk it because I like my steak rare.

I assume bad stuff living in dairy cattle is the norm then and we just get rid of it all via pasturisation?

A quick check on google confirms that it does, well sounds like nothing to worry about.

I really should stop spending so much time on ats!

totally understandable. Its like how I found out that we carry e.coli in our gut.

No, not crazy to be worried. A new strain identified may be even more resistant than the current strains.
and it's in the food supply!
