Study: Majority of Pork Contaminated With Bacteria [VIDEO]
A Consumer Reports study says some of the pork purchased in grocery stores and specialty stores contain high levels of bacteria that causes food poisoning.
FOX News Radio’s Courtney Kealy reports:
Consumer Reports says it tested almost 150 pork chops and 50 samples of ground pork in six different cities and found high levels of harmful bacteria. Overall, almost 69% of all pork tested contained some bacteria. Many of the samples were also resistant to antibiotics.
(Meat Counter Worker) “A lot if it is raised in one particular region. A lot of it’s slaughtered in the same area and processed there. So the fact that that amount of it is all being contaminated, it’s basically coming from a similar source.”
A meat counter worker in Los Angeles says she’s not surprised.
Ground pork, according to Consumer Reports, is more likely to contain the bacteria than pork chops.
