I've known for a long time that chicken can be toxic, but an April article in the New York Times showed that almost half of the chicken in grocery stores is contaminated by E coli, which researchers say is an indicator of fecal contamination.

Go vegetarian. You really don't need these problems and neither do the chickens.

Good grief... and even cantaloupes can kill you. Too bad we have to eat to survive!

Oh,oh, there goes my cookout. Although in reality these days, I think just about anything that we eat can become contaminated.

Protect yourself! Adopt a plant-based, organic diet. And yes, it can be done fairly inexpensively. Thanks for posting, Carrie!

More meat should be irradiated before being sold. That'll destroy the bacteria.

This article is very disturbing!! I love chicken and have been eating organic chicken and eggs from the health food store for several years now! I have been planning on raising my own chickens for eggs and am almost there with it. I guess I will be raising my own chickens to eat as well now! Shame on those industry profiteers for their immoral and unhealthy practices.

There's a lot worse things in American processed meat than chicken poo. Do you know what amonia is?

Oh my word! I don't eat meat but am still appalled that people are being sold contaminated food stuffs.The process of killing, cleaning, dissecting and packaging is obviously not regulated enough!

A no -meat diet for some people is not suitable and to just avoid meat because it might be tainted with e-coli....well
so has lettice, broccoli, peanuts, tomatos and many things on the grocers shelves.
This article would be ideal if it also mentioned the FDA is underfunded. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been chronically under funded for many years.....because the republicans believe in smaller and smaller Govt. Problem too--citizens demand everything be first class that the gov't can provide but don't want to pay for it in taxation.
