Consumers at Risk: Yet Another Chicken Recall

PBS has announced yet another nationwide food recall. This time, more than 31,000 pounds of breaded chicken have been recalled by Pennsylvania-based company Murry’s Inc.

According to the PBS article, “The chicken may be contaminated with Staphylococcal bacteria, a type of bacteria commonly implicated in food-borne illnesses and Staph infections.

“Staphylococcal toxins act fast and can cause illness within 30 minutes of exposure, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the author explains. Vomiting and nausea, as well as stomach cramping and diarrhea, are just some of the symptoms of Staphylococcal food poisoning.

The Colorado Department of Agriculture uncovered this contamination during a routine inspection.

Thankfully, we can safeguard our health by choosing to leave meat off our plates. Adopting a plant-based diet is one of the easiest and most powerful choices consumers can make to protect themselves from disease and animals from suffering on factory farms and in slaughterhouses.
