Problem: Processed meat and poultry products are an ideal environment for the growth of the deadly bacteria Listeria.

FDA approved solution: A spray containing viruses that eat the bacteria on the meat.

A virus cocktail.

I think I’ll pass on that one.


Bacteria-eating viruses (bacteriophages) have been approved as meat additives to reduce the risk of Listeria and Campylobacter found in processed meat and poultry products, but there is a concern they could spread toxin genes between bacteria. For more about leading food poisoning causes of death #1 and #2 see Total Recall (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/total-recall/) and Brain Parasites in Meat (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/brain-parasites-in-meat/).

In my book Bird Flu (http://birdflubook.com/g.php?id=5) I have a chapter about these creative meat industry “technofixes” (rectal poultry superglue anyone? (http://birdflubook.com/a.php?id=52)).

For videos on other chicken feed additives of questionable safety, see Arsenic in Chicken (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/arsenic-in-chicken/) and Drug Residues in Meat (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/drug-residues-in-meat/), and for what Campylobacter can do, Poultry and Paralysis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/poultry-and-paralysis/).

Please also feel free to check out any of the other 1,000+ thousand topics (http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/), and if you didn’t like the thought of the meat industry spreading viruses on your food, tomorrow’s video is entitled [Maggot Meat Spray].

Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/viral-meat-spray and he’ll try to answer it!
