Watch those Chicken Breasts

19 Dec

Most people delight in eating chicken breasts because we feel that is the best and healthiest part of the chicken. It’s white meat and we’re told that white meat is good for us. Well a recent study found that 67%.

The report analyzed more than 300 raw chicken breasts purchased at stores across the U.S., and found potentially harmful bacteria lurking in almost all of the it. The staggering statistic also included organic brands, so foodies beware: a revised label and trendy buzzword does not a safe poultry make. The numbers came to light during an intensive investigation after the October news of a national salmonella outbreak linked to three Foster Farms chicken plants, which soon yielded troubling results for more than just the one company’s chicken product. In the case of the Foster Farms outbreak, nearly 390 people were infected, with 40% of them hospitalized in critical condition—double the percentage historically linked to salmonella outbreaks. 

What are we going to do now? Why is this suddenly discovered? Does GMO has anything to do with this?
