Meat Safety Questioned

The Chicago Tribune examines the safety and negative health consequences of eating meat.

Last Friday, the Chicago Tribune released an article investigating recent meat recalls and examined the health consequences of consuming factory-farmed meat and poultry. The article goes into great detail about the different safety and health risks inherent to factory-farming practices, such as spraying meat with ammonia, injecting chlorine into chickens, and carbon-monoxide exposure to meat during packaging. Earlier this week, a recall was issued for 864,000 pounds of meat produced at a California meat processing plant. While the amount alone was staggering, the act of recalling contaminated meat has become an increasingly common practice for the industry.
