More E. coli Testing in Light of Meat Recalls

Due to an increase number of recalls of contaminated meat in recent years the government is expanding its testing of E. coli in meat, in hopes it will hasten recalls and help authorities identify more foodborne illnesses. Even though the meat industry immediately opposed the move, the government ordered to begin testing for six additional strains of E. coli in beef trimmings in March 2012. To read the article please visit Government to start E. coli testing in some meat cuts next year; move will hasten recalls: http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/industries/government-to-expand-e-coli-testing-in-some-meat-cuts-next-year-move-will-hasten-recalls/2011/09/13/gIQA4H7mOK_story.html

The government is once again applying a band-aid on a monumental problem: agribusiness. Although more testing will hopefully unveil how unsafe animal products are, it will do nothing in behalf of billions of exploited creatures. The government needs to stop subsidizing the meat, dairy and egg industries and start promoting a plant-based diet.
