Consumer Reports: Ground Turkey Rife With Germs

(NEWSER) – It’s a safe bet that any ground turkey you buy at the supermarket is laden with potentially dangerous bacteria, says Consumer Reports. Its first report on turkey meat gets off to a happy start by noting that “more than half of the packages of raw ground meat and patties tested positive for fecal bacteria.” The magazine tested for five organisms—enterococcus, E. coli, staphylococcus aureus, salmonella, and campylobacter—and at least one showed up in 90% of the 257 samples, reports CBS News.CR says most of the contaminants it found were resistant to common antibiotics and blamed the overuse of drugs in feedlots. Products labeled “organic” or “no antibiotics” fared much better in this area, and the magazine encouraged their use.

The turkey-meat industry is lashing back at what it calls a “misleading” and too-small study. Of the contaminants found, it writes, “the two most prevalent, enterococcus and generic E.coli, are not considered sources of foodborne illness.” It also notes that only 5% of the samples tested positive for salmonella, adding: “This is borne out by more extensive government testing, which finds almost 90% of all ground turkey and 97% of whole turkeys are salmonella-free.” At the Wall Street Journal, Tom Gara isn’t exactly bowled over by that argument. “You know it’s a tough news day when an industry association boasts its product is almost 90% salmonella-free.”

5-Year-Old Kills Sister, 2, With ‘My First Rifle’


Posted May 1, 2013 6:11 AM CD

NEWSER) – It was “just one of those crazy accidents,” in the words of the local coroner: A 5-year-old in Cumberland County, Kentucky, accidentally shot and killed his 2-year-old sister yesterday with a .22-caliber rifle. But unlikemany such tragedies, the rifle in this case actually belonged to the child, the Lexington Herald-Leader reports. The gun, which he received as a gift last year, was inadvertently left loaded with a single shell in a corner of the family’s home.

“It’s a Crickett,” said coroner Gary White of the gunmarketed to youths with the slogan “My First Rifle.” He continued, “It’s a little rifle for a kid … The little boy’s used to shooting the little gun.” White told WKYT that the children’s mother was home when the shooting occurred: “She was actually cleaning, and she had went out on the porch. She said no more than three minutes had went by and she actually heard the rifle go off. She ran back in and found the little girl.”

Baruch Borowski, the father of Evyatar Borowski, who was killed in the terrorist attack this morning at the Tapuach junction in Shomron (Samaria) said that upon originally heard news of the attack, he was unable to come to grips with the reality of the situation.

“I saw the attack on television and knew it was not good, but I ignored it, hoping for the best, and moved on… until I received the message that the victim was Evyatar,” he said.

“I did not tell my wife anything,” he told Galei Tzahal Radio.

“He was a righteous man,” Baruch said of his son, Evyatar, who was in the middle of a medical clowning course. That was “his life’s mission”, he said.

“He was not afraid to live in this area despite my efforts to dissuade him from living there.”

Evyatar was murdered at the age of 31 on Tuesday morning by an Arab from the nearby Arab town of Tulkaram.

He was the father of five children, the oldest of which is seven years old.  The terrorist stabbed Evyatar in the upper body.  Magen David Adom teams arrived at the scene and pronounced him dead on the spot.

He will be laid to rest in Kfar Hassidim in the Zebulun Valley at the foot of the Galilee, where he grew up. (blog) (blog)
