Ew, that's nasty. Not surprised the FDA allowed this though, they have a monetary interest in the consumption of chicken, after all.

And our government is turning the inspection in processing plants over to the producer who is speeding up the lines the chickens speed by almost in a blur.

Obviously this article gets a standing ovation from the Vegans.
In my experience I have found that if you are determined enough you can find fault with pretty much anything, which leaves me wondering how many brands of chicken were found with no contamination?
Note that the only one tested with no contamination was retested and found to have 60% contamination. If they made such a huge error testing that one how can I trust the others? Oh! yes those tests favour the vegan slant, sorry I wasn't thinking, must be all the chicken I have eaten over the last 77 years.

If you support your small natural / organic farmer you won't have to worry about thinks like this.

And I wonder how much fecal matter is on the produce we buy as well. Ever go to the restroom at a market and see someone leave to continue shopping without washing their hands first? Yeah, and then see them picking up all the tomatoes and other fruit and veggies? Mmm hmmm.
