How safe is your Beef?

The American love affair with beef endures. All meat potentially contains bacteria that—if not destroyed by proper cooking—can cause food poisoning, but some meats are more risky than others. There’s no way to tell by looking at a package of meat or smelling it whether it has harmful bacteria or not; however, after several conducted studies, one of the most significant findings was that beef from conventionally raised cows (feedlots, corn-based diet, antibiotics, etc) was more likely to have bacteria overall, as well as bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics, than beef from sustainably raised cows (grass fed, pasture raised).
