Chicken Fecal Soup

In our interest of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, I came across a recent article that might be of interest you.

I bet you thought that this article was about some sort of recipe….guess again. It is really about the chicken you buy in some of the stores and apparently, how the FDA is not protecting our food. 

Doctors Sue USDA for Ignoring Concerns Over Fecal Contamination of Chicken

WASHINGTON—The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine—a nonprofit with 12,000 doctor members—filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture on April 16, 2019, for ignoring concerns over fecal contamination of chicken and other meat.

The lawsuit, filed with the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, seeks to compel USDA to comply with the Administrative Procedure Act and respond to a petition the Physicians Committee submitted on March 14, 2013, which requested that USDA regulate feces as an adulterant under the Federal Meat Inspection Act and the Poultry Products Inspection Act.

Although USDA implements a “zero tolerance” policy for fecal contamination, this policy only applies to visible fecal contamination. Chicken products pass inspection as long as feces are not visible to the naked eye.
