People need to take matters such as this into their own hands make better choices when it comes to choosing one's food, whether it be meat or veggies. Stop buying from factory farms and either grow your own or buy from small farms. Factory farming has grown into an industry that puts profits above the care and well- being of the animals being raised for slaughter, not to mention pumping the animals full of antibiotics and other drugs because they are kept in such small areas for the number of animals in that space. Also the use of gmo seeds and lots of chemical's for crops is the norm. Many countries will not accept our gmo crops for import because of studies that link cancer to gmo corn and soybeans. Bottom line: seek out whole, natural foods from local sources.

One more reason to take a long, painful look at the factory farm practices.

in this contemporary economy corporate farms may make finacial sense because the scale of the operation produces efficiencies. But here we have an exquisite example of production efficiencies crossing the line into excessive profitability. This is another form of exploitatation. Exploitation of not just the animals, the laborers, and the consumers, but exploitation of the entire economic system. People need to learn the difference between cheap and inexpensive, and to place long-term health and wellness before immediate financial gain.

The chickens are coming home to roost. Indiscriminate usage of antibiotics in the food supply is now leading to the emergence of stronger bugs. We see the same thing in the hospital setting from decades of poor choices now we have it for the table.

Here in Germany, eating raw, ground pork (Mett) is quite popular. They have a special process of grinding it half frozen and it must be sold on the day it was prepared. Had it many times... no probs.

I bet your best "halb und halb" comes from farms that are small, directly to the butcher, and not with animals packed together so they can hardly lay down.

There's very little of that available.  As I mentioned to someone else, in Germany 98% of meat consumed comes from CAFOs.

One good reason why I avoid ground meats in general. It just mixes all the germs homogenously into the meat.

Yes, and cannot be traced back to the source of contamination - too many animals in that 1/4 lb burger.

Just more liberal media hype to justify big government. We don't need regulations and waste money hiring health inspectors. The beloved and blessed job givers that control factory farming are simply trying to give the consumer more value by their practises. We must put our faith in the Repubs and the beloved and blessed CEOs that give us jobs!

It is not just the eating of undercooked pork that is dangerous. Just handling the meat, or allowing the bacteria into a small wound can create a difficult-to-treat infection. If you must eat factory-raised pork- wash it and your hands carefully.
Better yet, eat half as much and pay twice the price for free-range pork without antibiotics, hormones, etc.

Enjoy your GMO foods, and HGH/Antibiotic/Steroid pumped livestock. The future is brighter with Cancer and more "weird" diseases. Come to think of it, almost a billion people will eventually be "culled" within the next 60 - 100 years from eating food like this. More space for the elite on planet earth.

I predict that over 4 billion people will "eventually be 'culled' within the next 60 - 100 years", no matter what they eat.

Certainly, the high levels of bacteria must be killed via cooking, but simply killing the bacteria leaves the toxic by products of their presence in the food. These, in many cases, are the actual cause of sickness, not to mention bad taste and appearance of the prepared dish.

It is too bad that a nation once at the fore front of medicine will never house the minds or scientist to find cures for our inevitable clash with 'superbugs'. Antibiotic resistant bacteria are an unfortunate part of our future but was inevitable because of evolution (which many still don't believe in this country).

We are our own worst enemy. The antibiotics pumped into livestock are not a product of evolution. In fact, evolution gives us defenses against environmental threats such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi. The proliferation of resistant bacteria, and toxic food, are the doing of greedy farmers, supported by corrupt, and inept, and irresponsible political "leaders". Unfortunately, the US now leads the world in the corruptability of its politicians.

Only pork can have trichinosis but otherwise you're completely right.

These multi resistant bacteria are created by FARMERS and their medicine suppliers. In many countries hospitals are in trouble after they treated a farmer. They bring MRA into places where other people ar treated for illnesses, whole deoartments need to be closed.
