Bad Beef – ‘Would you Like E. Coli with That?’

Posted by Irresponsibilty

Food poisoning from toxic strains of E. coli, mostly the O157:H7 variety, has become a recurring problem. The strain is responsible for an estimated 73,000 illnesses and 61 deaths across the country each year. – New York Times

Good news carnivores! The Agriculture Department has given prelimary approval to an E. Coli vaccine for cattle. So your flesh-fix may be marginally less likely to kill you. Or the new vaccine might cause the bacteria to mutate and create super-E. Coli. Or it might not work at all! Who knows! But eating should be an adventure; and nothing gets the pulse racing like a round of Steak Roulette.
