    I try to buy stuff that's free-range, antibiotic free, or made without any growth hormones, but I don't always.

    I've taken food handling classes because of working in bars and restaurants in Las Vegas. I also cook a lot at home, so I know how to handle raw meat, eggs, etc.

    I mean to me it's just common sense almost, like people in modern society have gotten so used to preservatives, convenience foods and microwaves maybe they've forgotten how to handle food, which can carry germs, and it always has. This isn't a new development.

    Nationwide study finds U.S. meat and poultry is widely contaminated with additional meat and poultry. Yum.

    That's what I call efficiency.

    As far as actual consumer safety goes, to put things in perspective, I'm pretty sure meat has significantly fewer annual contamination recalls than vegetables/fruits/nuts/etc... And the latter are far more often eaten raw, adding to the risks.
    How about the peanut factory where they found rat shit all over the place?
    That got like, a week or two of coverage... -_-
    I suspect meat makes better media fodder, regardless of the actual safety risks involved, because meat/carrion invokes a much more visceral sense of "grossness" in people's minds than do plants.


    As far as factory farming creating a breeding environment for bacteria/viruses, that's another debate altogether.
    I mostly see it as a moot point, given the inevitability of cloned meat in the near future.

    Modern food handling is much better than in the past due to widespread education about hygiene. Yet this does not guarantee safety. Sadly you still have a point about some having 'forgotten how to handle food'.

    That sound interesting. Do you have information on the comparison?
