Meat Safety Questioned

The Chicago Tribune examines the safety and negative health consequences of eating meat.

Last Friday, the Chicago Tribune released an article investigating recent meat recalls and examined the health consequences of consuming factory-farmed meat and poultry. The article goes into great detail about the different safety and health risks inherent to factory-farming practices, such as spraying meat with ammonia, injecting chlorine into chickens, and carbon-monoxide exposure to meat during packaging.
