Forget Grass Fed Beef – You are eating GRAS Ground Beef

I read with interest this morning a little article (1). It might be hard to miss this little gem, but not for me apparently. My inbox overflowith with the link. Queries, questions, and disbelief. After re-reading the article, a curious question crossed my mind. What exactly is the process of introducing ammonia going to do to me? So of course I started looking…..

The first tinge of alarm came from a 2004 article discussing Mr. Roth’s receipt of the FoodQuality award (2):

“….and the patented method became a federally deemed “generally regarded as safe” (GRAS) process.”

Oh my. That sounds, uhm – tasty. What exactly is “generally recognized as safe” and who decides that? (3):

“A GRAS designation typically exists in one of three forms: More

 “There is something fascinating about science.  One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.”  — Mark Twain

__________________________________________


If only Mark Twain were alive today, he would have a field day commenting on what the U.S. Department of Agriculture considers to be “scientific”.  

Subsequent to the Jack In The Box E. coli outbreak in 1993, USDA desperately and hurriedly implemented the current Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) protocol of deregulated meat inspection.  HACCP was originally invented by Pillsbury, focused on the production of consistently safe food for NASA and the Army.  Pillsbury’s HACCP required “Kill Steps” during food production, meaning that the food had to be subjected to a kill step such as fully cooking or irradiation, effectively killing all pathogens.  Pillsbury’s HACCP system was truly based in science, and creates safe food.

USDA intentionally changed the Pillsbury protocol, but of course, retained the right to classify its HACCP imposter as allegedly being “science-based”.  USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) demands that all federally inspected plants implement USDA-style HACCP.  Thus, FSIS requires that HACCP be used for all raw meat and poultry, which by definition does not utilize kill steps, but still qualifies for USDA-style HACCP.

Could Genetically Modified Crops be causing E-Coli Contamination?

Farm Wars

There is long list of  dangers inherent in genetically modifying our food supply, which includes:

  • Cross-species viruses
  • New bacteria
  • Antibiotic resistance
  • Reactivation of dormant viruses
  • New, never before seen genes
  • Destruction of the environment

The question is, can we add e-coli contamination to this list?

Somebody save us! The USDA is partnering with DuPont!

Leave a comment

If the idea of DuPont and the USDA teaming up doesn’t send chills down your spine, I guess not much will.  But here in a nutshell, the global threat to the food supply…..in other words….the industrialization of food production…..is somehow now at risk from new and resistent strains of e-Coli.  Damn! wonder how that happened?  This is where the groundwork for more invasive and pointless regulations will begin.  First you create a crisis…..

DuPont and USDA team up to tackle emerging food safety threat

By Rory Harrington, 04-Aug-2010

A new joint project between DuPont Qualicon and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) aims to develop testing to detect hard-to-identify strains of E.coli that are not regulated and have been causing increasing instances of food contamination.

The US-based company said tests have already been developed for E. coli O157:H7, the type of shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) most frequently associated with global food contamination outbreaks. But the company will partner the USDA after identifying a gap that currently exists in assays to detect other strains. DuPont characterised the non-0157 types as an “emerging threat to the food supply”. More

Tester introduces Meat Safety and Accountability Act

Leave a comment

Everyone:

Please find below a Press Release issued by Senator Jon Tester this Wednesday, announcing his introduction of the “Meat Safety and Accountability Act“, aka “The Traceback Bill“.  If it passes, USDA would be forced to trace back to the slaughterhouse of origin of enteric bacteria, namely E.coli and Salmonella.  USDA has publicly admitted that it will NOT perform Tracebacks when agency-collected samples of ground beef are determined to be contaminated with E.coli.  Instead, USDA will only do tracebacks when E.coli-laced meat causes an outbreak.
