Chicken Responsible for the Most Outbreak-Associated Illnesses

Chicken Responsible for the Most Outbreak-Associated Illnesses
I have not had any chicken this year 
or any other fowl.  

I have not had any red meat this year.  

A few cans of fish only.  
The smaller the fish the better. 

Chicken is not a vegetable. !!!!

Fowl isCAFO fed GMO, drugs chemicals. 

As is pork and most beef and dairy. 

  • Between 2009 and 2015, there were 5,760 reported foodborne outbreaks resulting in 100,939 illnesses, 5,699 hospitalizations and 145 deaths
  • Chicken was responsible for the most outbreak-associated illnesses — 3,114 cases in all (12 percent), 

  • followed by pork and seeded vegetables, each responsible for 10 percent of illnesses

  • Food testing through the years has shown that chicken is particularly prone to contamination with dangerous pathogens, including antibiotic-resistant bacteria

  • Raw chicken has become a notorious carrier of 
  • salmonella, 
  • campylobacter, 
  • clostridium perfringens and 
  • listeria bacteria. 

  • Salmonella contamination is of particular concern, as multidrug-resistant salmonella has become prevalent

  • According to predictions, 10 million people worldwide will die from antibiotic-resistant diseases by 2050 lest swift action is taken to curb resistance — and that necessitates the elimination of unnecessary agricultural use of antibiotics
