Food News


THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following news is from the FoodProductDesign.com and Consumer Reports posted on May 1, 2013.

Consumer Reports magazine revealed in its June 2013 issue that a lab analysis of ground turkey products purchased at retail stores across the United States revealed potentially harmful bacteria for nearly all the samples tested,.
Of the 257 samples Consumer Reports tested, more than half were associated with fecal contamination while 90% contained one or more of the five bacteria for which they were tested. The magazine also highlighted another troubling finding: nearly all of the disease-causing organisms were resistant to antibiotics that are commonly used to fight them.
