Last week, 35,000 pounds of ground beef sold to Southern California restaurants had been recalled. Why? Because the beef was contaminated with E. Coli. Do you know where E. Coli is commonly found? In POOP! Sometimes in slaughterhouses, these caca doodie germs intermingle with the meat that gets processed and shipped to restaurants and stores for consumption.

E. coli is a potentially deadly germ that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration and, in the most severe cases, kidney failure … As if you needed another reason to not eat meat.

Even when it’s veggies being recalled, it all stems from the messy meat industry; these crops get infected with manure run-off from neighboring animal farms.

Bottom line: If you don’t want to be a part of the poopy problem, just don’t eat meat.

Just keepin’ it real,
Sunny

    To quote the film ‘Fast Food Nation’:
    “There’s sh!t in the meat!”

    @veggie doc Sure, you can contaminate your food if you don’t wash your hands but this blog is talking about massive recalls… waaaaaaaay different situation.

    @Lara Any poop in veggies is a direct result of factory farming.

    unfortunately e-coli can be in veggies too when they are contaminated by poor sanitation (ie not hand washing after bathroom breaks by restaurant workers or food processors) or cross contamination by meat. I am all for the veggie lifestyle but PETA needs to give the whole story not just the one that suits their cause.
