    Eat ground turkey? It's most likely contaminated with antibiotic resistant Staph.

    This recent study sampled beef, pork, chicken, and ground turkey from 26 retail grocery stores in 5 US cities: Chicago; Washington, DC; Fort Lauderdale; Los Angeles; and Flagstaff. They found that around half of all samples were contaminated with antibiotic resistant Staphylococcus aureus Almost 80% of the ground turkey was contaminated. 61% of the ground turkey was contaminated with MRSA.

    Think about this the next time you make some turkey burgers.

    Completely cook ground muscle products - Minimum internal temperature 165F for 15 seconds

    If it flies over, walks on, or grows from the ground, it can be contaminated.

    All food has risk. There is no safe heaven for the omnivore or herbivore.

    E. coli 0157:H7 in veggies and fruit: http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/foodnut/09369.pdf

    E. means Escherichia = from poop. Mmmm poop. You can live in denial.

    I am not taking a side for or against: vegetarian, meat eater, organic food consumer, etc. I am just saying no food is inherently safe. Believing your particular choice is - is blissful ignorance.
