Put your money where your beef is…
When it comes to the safety of ground beef, the Barf Blog wants meat producers to turn platitudes into packaging labels.
In response to a recent slate of ground-beef recalls, producers at all phases of meat processing have come out to defend the industry’s safety practices. For example, there was this letter to the editor in The New York Times from Jeremy Russell, the director of communications for the National Meat Association:
“The American food safety system is the highest standard in the world, and our ground beef is the safest,” writes Russell.
If that is the case, the Barf Blog wants companies to reassure consumers by explaining exactly what has happened to the product they are buying.
