Is There Poop in Your Burger?
Posted June 28, 2010 by peta2 staff
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.
