In their latest blog post, Jenny Sangler announces some news that she said makes her worry.
It concerns a recent study conducted by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which found that around half of all raw chicken products purchased at grocery stores in the U.S are contaminated with dangerous E. coli bacteria.
She also mentioned that the PCRM are known to advocate a vegan diet. Their study concluded that of the 120 raw chicken products they purchased, 48% contained E. coli, often meaning that contamination by feces is present.
Jenny links her readers to a New York Times article in which the President of PCRM claimed that most people are completely unaware that the chicken products they purchase contain contaminated feces.
However, as Jenny then points out, many believe that the study is actually invalid, designed instead to scaremonger and promote the vegan lifestyle.
“While the jury may be out on the validity of this study, a recent study in the UK found that a fifth of all raw chickens bought in UK supermarkets carry bacteria that cause food poisoning, such as salmonella, listeria and campylobacter” Jenny says.
She goes on to admit that, if she still ate meat, she’d be starting to get a little worried. She also claims that she does not in any way feel ‘superior’ to meat eaters and that she does not want to come across as a smug vegetarian. However, she does worry when she hears of reports such as this one.
“Whatever you think of the PCRM study, I, for one, am thankful for the fact that they have brought this subject out into the open” Jenny adds, concluding her latest post.
