Flip that bird
By Consumers Union on Tuesday, December 5th, 2006
The jump between the 2003 and 2006 studies is attributed to a dramatic increase in Campylobacter contamination. USDA established a standard and testing program for Salmonella, but has neither standards nor a program specifically designed to address Campylobacter. The assumption was controlling Salmonella would control Campylobacter. Consumer Reports findings cast doubt on that strategy.
Consumers Union, publisher of Consumer Reports, is renewing its call for USDA to set a standard and testing program for Campylobacter. Tell USDA to get serious about campylobacter contamination.
