This is just one more reason, in a long list of reasons, to either stop eating animal products all together (ideally), or to start buying your meat, dairy and eggs from a local source. Yes it will probably cost a bit more, but it is your health that we are talking about after all. Try to find a small scale farm where the cattle is grass fed, in a field, not in a big metal building with hundreds of other cows, eating things that no cow would normally ever eat. Try to find eggs that are laid by chickens who are still allowed to roam around outside, pecking and scratching the earth as they were meant to do and who live in small flocks, same thing for your dairy products, the cows should be able to graze outside and are kept in small herds.
If this isn’t possible then buy organic, free-range products at the grocery store but be warned that “organic” and “free range” are big business now and so you might not always be getting what you think you are getting. Do a bit of research and read the packages carefully. If you buy carefully and research fully before you buy, you will end up with food from healthier animals who haven’t been injected with all kinds of drugs and who didn’t eat feed that was contaminated with pesticides and who knows what all else.
It might mean that you can’t get all your groceries in a single stop, you might have to visit a few different places but it would be worth it to keep your family healthy and safe. Incidents like this have been increasing over the past few decades, all over the world, and they are only likely to get worse.
Here in Germany we received 950 tons of this meat…people have been eating it since Sept. 1st! People have been eating this toxic garbage for 4 months without warning. Now they tell us to destroy any pork products that we have bought since Sept. 1st. Ha! You can bet that most any pork that has been bought is already eaten. I can tell you that it is a huge relief to know that Peer and I haven’t eaten any of it, since we don’t eat meat. But of course there is always the chance that our friends and families have eaten it.
