Fix the Fairy tails…

Fairy tails; Veggie Propaganda, a Catchy, Sing-song Animation. Fix the Fairy tails…

Veggie Propaganda is a quirky, sing-song animation that puts a spotlight on animals, our relationship with them and their rights. It explores childhood myths about animals vs. the reality of their lives in a human-centered world, where our food really comes from and how by simply eating less meat individuals can make an astounding positive impact on their health, their finances and the environment. This 2D fine-art/digital animation features original music performed by New York City band, The Penultimate.

Most Chicken Harbors Harmful Bacteria

Most Chicken Harbors Harmful Bacteria

83% of Chickens Tested for Consumer Reports Had 1 of 2 Sickening Bacteria.

Consumer Reports says — that “fresh poultry may [does] carry naturally occurring bacteria and should be properly handled and cooked,”

Dec. 4, 2006 — Even if you go for the more expensive organic or antibiotic-free chicken, the chicken you buy at the grocery store probably contains bacteria that can make you sick.

Careful handling and aggressive cooking can reduce, but not remove the risk!!!

A startling 83% of the chickens tested in the recent Consumer Reports investigation were contaminated with one or both of the leading bacterial causes of food-borne disease — salmonella and campylobacter.

That is way up from the results of 49% in 2003, when the group last reported on contamination in chickens, and similar to the contamination found in 1997, when almost three-fourths of the broilers Consumer Reports tested were positive for salmonella or campylobacter.

In their new report, “Dirty Birds”, investigators with Consumers Union, which publishes Consumer Reports, concluded that paying more for a chicken does not increase your chances of getting one free of illness-causing bacteria.

In fact chickens labeled as organic or raised without antibiotics and costing $3 to $5 per pound were more likely to harbor salmonella than were conventionally produced broilers that cost more like $1 a pound.

Jean Halloran of Consumers Union reports that fewer than one if five birds tested (17%) were free of both pathogens (Not free from all pathogens only those two for which they were tested), that’s the lowest percentage of clean birds recorded since the group began testing chickens eight years ago.

Investigators for the independent consumer group tested 525 whole broiler chickens from leading brands like Perdue, Tyson, Pilgrim’s Pride, and Foster Farms, as well as organic and other brands raised without antibiotics.

The chickens were purchased at supermarkets, mass retailers, gourmet shops, and natural food stores in 23 states in the spring of 06.

Among the findings:

15% of chickens tested were contaminated with salmonella, compared to the 12% reported by Consumers Union in 2003.

81% harbored campylobacter, up from 42% in 2003. This bug is the main identified cause of bacterial diarrhea illness in the world.

13% of chickens were contaminated with both bacteria, up from 5% in 2003.

84% of the salmonella organisms analyzed and 67% of the campylobacter were resistant to one or more antibiotics. In the 2003 report, 34% of the salmonella and 90% of campylobacter were resistant.

“The problem of antibiotic resistance is related to both the widespread use of antibiotics in animal feed to promote growth and the widespread use in humans,” Halloran says.

Major brands tested did not show better results than smaller brands, overall, based on tests of 78 chickens from each brand.

Halloran says it is clear routine testing is needed.

“81% [campylobacter] contamination is intolerable, in our view,” she says.
