I have never purchased ground turkey. And with this information, I never will.
12:03 AM on 05/02/2013
I almost went into my freezer and threw all of my ground turkey out. Then I remembered that virtually all food in this country is contaminated with bacteria, GMOs, pesticides, unpronounceable ingredients, and Lord knows what else. This is why I try my best to buy as locally and as fresh as possible. Very difficult to do when you're in a big city like Philly, but we do have some excellent Farmer's Markets around here!

As long as it's not spore forming, I don't care!

It doesn't have to be spore forming to be lethal.

But it does have to be a pathogenic strain to cause disease. The E. coli and enterococcus found were not pathogenic. Cooking the meat well will kill most of the bacteria (provided they are not spore forming) thus preventing you from consuming an infective dose (if it was of the pathogenic strain). Have you ever been swimming in a lake or river? Have you ever tested the water in which you were swimming? Coliforms galore!!! We even tested tap water and found coliforms (which is unusual, but they were there). Better yet, have you ever swabbed the bottom of your shoe and grew a culture? Tons of nastiness there! Bacteria is ubiquitous -- you will never escape it all. I'm not shocked in the very least bacteria was found on this meat -- heck, we have it naturally in our intestinal track and part of the resident flora of our skin (including staph!) -- does anyone really think meat is completely sterile? Even all those canned fruits and vegetables aren't sterile -- commercial sterilization only kills C. botulinum so imagine all the other bacteria growing on it.

With insecticides in fruits and veggies and all the bacteria in meat, all you can do is wash everything as good as you can and cook your meat very well done while most importantly praying over your food and putting your trust and faith in GOD because you can't just quit eating and you can't worry yourself to death that everything you eat is going to kill you. All food in one way or another is contaminated and there really isn't anything you can do about it.....

Of course there is. Fight. Fight against Monsanto, against Ag-gag laws, against pesticides, against factory farms, GMO's, etc. Write letters, make phone calls, network, fight with your dollar by not buying certain things/ brands, grow some of your own food, become a vegetarian if it suits your body type, there is much you can do. Just pick one small thing and do it. God is not going to help you with this one, sorry. This is serious. People die from contaminated food, and our nation's food supply is produced entirely in the DARK with zero oversight while big ag pays off everyone they can find. You don't have to live in fear or worry, but certainly don't throw up your hands and give in.

the water that we use and , sometime, drink is also being filtered and then reused; including the water from restrooms...

to all here who say they are glad they dont eat meat .. GMO vegis and fruits are equal to bad infected meat . monsanto corp makes GMO vegies that are resistant to the weed killer called round up . the chemicals in the GMO plants and the chemicals from the round up weed killer that farmers use alot of , build up in your body and cause many auto immune system disorders and cancer , so enjoy your veggies !

But your cattle, chicken, pigs, etc. are fed GMO corn, so you get it anyway. UNLESS, you eat organic. If you saw what they do to those animals, you'd never eat meat again.

This really shouldn't be considered news... it's common sense.

Cook your food.

Again, glad I don't eat meat. Every study on meat seems to end with words like "pus" or "fecal matter". No thanks.

"...judicious use of antibiotics." That adjective is designed to deceive, not illuminate. Huge amounts of antibiotics are used in the meat industry and they contribute to the growing danger of antibody resistance.

A turkey industry spokesman on NBC News tonight said that poo in the turkey is normal and not unhealthful, and that creating anti-biotic-resistant killer bacteria for the sake of factory farming is not a problem.

Of course he said that, he has a bottom line to protect.
