One of the many reasons we love our chickens!

Posted 5/16/2015 7:17am by Mike Nolan.
Hello friends!
This email was sent to Farmer Mike earlier this week.  It is about a Frontline documentary entitled "The Trouble with Chicken" where they investigate the spread of dangerous pathogens in meat, focusing primarily on poultry.
This documentary articulates one of the many reasons we love to raise our egg layer and meat chickens as free range and Non-GMO here at Earth Spring Farm.

Dear Mike,
“The strains of Salmonella are tougher, stronger, and many of them are antibiotic-resistant.”

That’s Caroline Smith DeWaal, food safety director here at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, interviewed in an important episode of Frontline airing tomorrow night on PBS stations.

CSPI has twice petitioned the U.S. Department of Agriculture to treat these antibiotic-resistant strains of Salmonella as adulterants—and to keep chicken tainted with those strains out of commerce.  Yet USDA continues to take action only after outbreaks sicken consumers.

Check your local listings and watch a preview for the episode here.

If you’d like to tell USDA to take action before people get sick—and require controls and testing for antibiotic-resistant Salmonella—take action here.
