Drug-resistant bacteria found in 40% of supermarket meat samples

 Yes, a recent study found that drug-resistant bacteria were found in 40% of supermarket meat samples in Spain. The study, which was presented at the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases in Copenhagen, Denmark, found that E. coli bacteria that is resistant to antibiotics was found in 40% of meat samples gathered at supermarkets in Spain. Also highly prevalent in the samples were strains of E. coli known to cause severe illness.


The findings are amplifying concerns about food-borne illness and the overuse of antibiotic drugs. Experts say you can lower the risk of food-borne illness by properly storing meat at cold temperatures and cooking it thoroughly.


Here are some tips for reducing your risk of food poisoning from meat:


* Buy meat from reputable sources.

* Store meat in the refrigerator or freezer as soon as possible after purchase.

* Cook meat to the proper temperature.

* Wash your hands thoroughly before and after handling meat.

* Avoid cross-contamination by keeping raw meat separate from cooked meat and other foods.

* Clean and sanitize surfaces that come into contact with raw meat.


If you do get sick from food poisoning, it is important to see a doctor right away. Food poisoning can cause a variety of symptoms, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. In some cases, food poisoning can be serious and even life-threatening.
