Pork under fire? We agree.
By Consumers Union on Monday, February 4th, 2013
Consumers Union has the pork industry “on the spit” according to meat industry mag Meatingplace, which cites Consumer Reports’ recent expose on pork products that harbored bacteria, many of which proved resistant to one or more types of antibiotics.
The article, titled “Pork Under Fire,” says that between Consumers Union pointing to the problems with antibiotics in animal agriculture coupled with the Humane Society’s campaign to end the use of gestation crates, the pork industry has its plate full playing “public relations defense.”
We say: if they didn’t abuse antibiotics in pork production and treated their animals right, there wouldn’t be anything to be defensive about.
