More on fecal contamination from chicken in Fecal Bacteria Survey, fish in Fecal Contamination of Sushi, and pigs in Yersinia in Pork. How can that be legal? See Salmonella in Chicken & Turkey: Deadly But Not Illegal.
More on the preservatives in chicken in Phosphate Additives in Meat Purge and Cola and antibiotic contamination in Drug Residues in Meat.
