Published on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 by Common Dreams 'Mad Cow' Finding Highlights Food Safety Gaps, Say Critics - Common Dreams staff The announcement on Tuesday that a California dairy cow had mad cow disease, or bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), highlights shortcomings of the country's food safety system, say critics.

You know what? This is what I don't get. Why would a hospital have food that is not good for human consumption? That would be the last place....right? And yet you go into the cafeteria and find hot dogs, sausages, links, bolonga, bacon etc all for the serving. First, we need to start with health professionals who are buying this stuff and feeding it to patients and the visitors. Make them accountable. What? They're trying to STAY in business? I think this is a CRIME. We have the ability to...

What’s in a name: Reading meat labels about antibiotic use Posted 06/20/12 at 2:01 pm Some labels are more meaningful than others. Consumers can have a very high level of trust that any meat and poultry labeled “USDA Organic” has never been given any antibiotics at any stage of production. Organic producers follow strict USDA guidelines in order to use the label on their products, which indicates that many healthful and environmentally sound practices were employed in the production of the...

Between the de/no-regulation and oversight of America's food industry I get more disgusted with eating meat everyday. I don't plan on buying/consuming anymore. This is the last straw for me, between my conscience telling me that it really is not right to eat the flesh of animals in the first place, and knowing just how unhealthy American meat is anyway, and now to even think that our government would allow meat "processed" in China to be sold in the United States, I think I'm through, and...
