    As a meat and poultry consumer, I care deeply. Good food is fundamental for living.

    Although Staph should be killed with proper cooking, it may still pose a risk to consumers through improper food handling and cross-contamination in the kitchen.
    Nothing alarming here. Seems most people have always been well-aware of the risks associated with consuming raw chicken, or allowing other food to touch raw chicken. I think most people are smart enough to use separate cutting boards for raw meats, and separate utensils.

    The part that bothers me is the effects of feeding farm animals antibiotics (Resistant bacteria). I prefer buying antibiotic-free chicken brands. But I have a problem with the over-use of antibiotics in humans as well, so it's no surprise that Im not ok with feeding them to animals.

    I work at an organic butcher shop where we sell very high quality, local, organic, antibiotic/hormone free meat and it's really spoiled me.

    I've never cared about where my meat has come from, but now I care very, very much. The world of conventional meat disgusts me. And yeah, it's expensive to buy my meat from there but honestly, this body (my only body) is worth it. Can't think of anything more worthy to invest that money in.

    Densely-stocked industrial farms, where food animals are steadily fed low doses of antibiotics, are ideal breeding grounds for drug-resistant bacteria that move from animals to humans, the report says.
    *facepalm* this sort of stuff is basic information, but people are too stupid to realize that its not smart thing to do to feed the animals so much antibiotics. people do the same thing with eating antibiotics.. damn retards

    Saying that 'if you cook it, you'll be fine' is missing the point. The fact is that there is plenty of handling before you cook it. If that was all that was necessary, then why have there been many epidemics associated with meat contamination in the past?

    The real point is that universal methods used in the meat industry is creating multidrug resistant strains of bacteria and there is widespread population exposure.
    It has been found that a large majority of the antibiotics in the USA are used in the meat industry.
