Cold Meat Industry was a Swedish independent record label established in 1987, which specialized in niche music genres such as dark ambient, death industrial, and neoclassical dark wave. From its inception, Cold Meat Industry gained a reputation for introducing artists that were unique and musically innovative. The label also became known for its contributions to the Gothic and industrial scenes. The term Cold Meat Industry eventually became a musical genre of sorts, referring mostly to avant-garde artists who were influenced by industrial and dark ambient music. In 2013 the label seemed to have stopped all activities. A notification posted in 2014 on the official Cold Meat Industry Facebook page claimed the official end of the label. Sound Source was a short-lived (1991-1992) side-label of CMI. It was specialized in releasing limited tape editions of many CMI artists debuts, such as Archon Satani, Brighter Death Now, Megaptera, Deutsch Nepal, raison dêtre and others. Since the mid ...

I have always been a bit amazed at the meat industry and the USDA. In the 18 years of litigating E. coli O157:H7 (and other bacterial and viral) cases - mostly on behalf of children - I am tired (and a bit disgusted) by the constant din of blaming the consumer. Sometimes the industry goes so far as to sue the parent of an injured child. One company went so far a few years ago as to sue the church that it had supplied with E. coli-tainted meat. So, several years ago I penned this Op-ed:. It is not the failure of the Meat Industry in not keeping cattle feces out of hamburger that sickened the child, but it is the fault of the parent who handled and cooked the hamburger that was fed to the child. This is a typical response to a sickened child by the meat industry and their lawyers. At first I calmly tried to respond that the Meat Industry that makes a profit off of selling USDA Inspected Meat can not blame the consumer if the product actually contains a pathogen that can severely sicken or kill ...

PRESS RELEASE - POSITIVE FOOT AND MOUTH DISEASE RESULTS IN THE MOLEMOLE DISTRICT OF LIMPOPO. The confirmation by the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries case of Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) has been identified in the Molemole district of Limpopo is of great concern. It not only has a negative impact on the red meat industry, but on the agricultural sector as a whole.. After the outbreak in January 2019, hard word has been done to recover South Africas status as an FMD free zone. The latest development is a setback. It is imperative that the extent of the problem be determined on an urgent basis.. The issue of accountability must also seriously be considered. FMD is a controlled disease and its control is therefore the primary responsibility of the provincial and national Departments of Agriculture. The industries are by means of the national and provincial Animal Health Forums involved and play a supportive role in the control of the disease.. Although there is full understanding ...

He used a term not previously heard in the red meat industry - No pain, No fear - to describe an advanced pre-slaughter process developed at his WA beef processing facility, Harvey Beef.. The ideal of No Pain No Fear can be confronting to many in the beef industry, the company said in last months advertisements. It can feel like an impossible challenge to overcome, or a phrase which should be kept out of sight, and out of mind. But profits cannot take priority over the pain and suffering of an animal.. Mr Forrest claimed that within his own processing business, Harvey Beef, there was no compromise.. We dont believe that any animal should be made to suffer, and we dont want to hide from the issues around the ethical treatment of the animals in our care, he said earlier.. Im very proud to say at Harvey Beef we have introduced the No Pain No Fear framework for the last moments before processing - which, if not managed ethically, can be a stressful time for livestock.. The company ...
An inquiry into Britains most serious food poisoning outbreak found that the dishonesty of a butcher and the incompetence of Environmental Health Officers were crucial factors. The poisoning killed 21 elderly people, hospitalised hundreds, and left some permanently affected.. The E.coli 0157 outbreak began in November 1996 in Lanarkshire, Scotland with the infection of meat and gravy served at a church lunch for pensioners. It raged for several months. Sheriff Principal Graham Cox, who headed the inquiry, found that butcher John Barr had concealed the full extent of his business from health officials. Cox said six lives might have been saved if Barr had been more honest about his supply of cold meats.. He criticised Barrs training and supervision of staff, failure to use proper temperature probes while cooking raw meat, the absence of cleaning schedules, and the failure to separate processes, knives and equipment for raw and cooked meat. As a result of Barrs lack of frankness about the ...

The Meats Laboratory is a meat processing facility, operating under federal inspection, which serves multiple purposes within the College of Agriculture and University Farm. The first priority of the Meats Lab is to serve as an educational facility, where students can gain knowledge of multiple facets of the meat industry through hands on experience by producing a quality and safe product. Livestock animals raised by other units at the University Farm for educational purposes are purchased by the Meats Lab to be harvested, processed, and sold by students under the supervision of the United States Department of Agriculture and a staff meats technician.. Students participate in production through labs, internships, and employment at the Meats Lab. As employees of the Meats Lab, students may graduate with not only a degree but a strong resume, demonstrating skills and knowledge of the meat industry, marketing, customer service, and federal food safety regulations. This experience will help to make ...
The act of slaughtering animals, or of raising or transporting animals for slaughter, may engender psychological stress or trauma in the people involved.[26][27][28][29][30][31][32][33][34][35][36][37] A 2016 study in Organization indicates, Regression analyses of data from 10,605 Danish workers across 44 occupations suggest that slaughterhouse workers consistently experience lower physical and psychological well-being along with increased incidences of negative coping behavior.[38] In her thesis submitted to and approved by University of Colorado, Anna Dorovskikh states that slaughterhouse workers are at risk of Perpetration-Inducted Traumatic Stress, which is a form of posttraumatic stress disorder and results from situations where the concerning subject suffering from PTSD was a causal participant in creating the traumatic situation.[39] A 2009 study by criminologist Amy Fitzgerald indicates, slaughterhouse employment increases total arrest rates, arrests for violent crimes, arrests for ...
The message seemed reasonable enough, coming as it did from the federal agency tasked with promoting sustainable agriculture and dietary health. And while part of the agencys mission is to promote the agricultural industry, crop farmers were quick enough to point out that they are part of that industry too. Its troubling that the USDA would cave in and give priority to the meat industry over the health of its employees and environmental sustainability. Also, we cant think of another industry that would dare to react with such misplaced self righteous indignation as the meat industry did last week. What if the energy lobby freaked out every time the Department of Energy told consumers how to cut back on their consumption?. There is a silver lining however. Meatless Mondays is an initiative of the nonprofit Monday Campaign Inc. and the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health that has shown a measure of success. Across the country, there are now thousands of corporate cafeterias, restaurants and ...
Source… https://www.vernoncoleman.com/meatcausingcancer3.htm. Introduction. When the meat industry made a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) about my book Food for Thought, I offered a number of scientific papers as evidence that I was simply telling the truth - that meat is a major cause of cancer. The ASA refused to look at the evidence I provided and found in favour of the meat industry and tried (unsuccessfully) to ban ads for the book. So here, in this brief extract from my book (which has been retitled Meat Causes Cancer) are basic details of the scientific papers which I submitted to the ASA. It is my belief that by attempting to suppress the truth, the ASA is responsible for many deaths. The Press Complaints Commission also refused to look at this evidence.. `There is clear medical and scientific evidence available to show that nothing, not even tobacco, influences your chances of developing cancer as much as the food you choose to eat. It is estimated that between ...
Another myth: If cows were unhappy, they wouldnt produce milk. Actually, cows produce milk because they are forced to--we artificially inseminate them, and then take their calves away from them at birth. They spend their lives tied up in stalls, without access to the outdoors, and are later sold to become ground beef. Many people who consume milk aptly think that cows just produce milk all the time. But, they are mammals just like us. They have to be raped and impregnated to produce milk as they only produce milk for their babies just like we do; and then we steal that milk from them. After that, we steal their baby from them. Its really one of the most horrific industries when you sit down and think about it. And even if you dont eat meat, but consume milk, you contribute to the meat industry because the male calves are immediately sold to the meat industry and all cows eventually end up there. Crazy ...
We all know that the meat industry is a dangerous threat to our climate and overall a questionable industry. The cattle release CO2, methane and other greenhouse gases. They also use a lot of land areas, around 25% of the earths total land area. And about one third of all farm areas are used to grow food for the cattle. According to studies the meat industry is responsible for about one fifth of all greenhouse gas emissions, in the world. That means they currently pollutes more than the whole transport sector. And by year 2050 the meat production is expected to increase with 50%. And then I havent even mentioned the rather obvious animal suffering. But maybe, if some environmentally concerned scientists get their way, the meat youll eat in the future will be produced inside a lab. Scientists from the In Vitro Meat Consortium are currently trying to produce meat from muscle tissue for human consumption. This laboratory-grown meat, or in vitro meat, should not be confused with imitation ...
President Trump is preparing to sign executive orders to keep Americas meat plants up and running, as they are under pressure from the global elites to shut their doors due to COVID-19 fears. National Review reports The order wouldclassify meat processing plantsas essential infrastructure, with federal government officials providing protective gear and guidance to workers. Government officials have reportedly estimated that up to 80 percent of the countrys meat supply could be shut down during the pandemic. Thank God for Trump, more on that in a minute... ...

Nonetheless, the meat industry is defending its turf - including in the grocery store. Missouri passed a law in 2018 restricting use of the word meat to animal-based proteins, and now more than 20 other states are considering or have enacted similar legislation. Countersuits have been filed, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is assessing whether the federal government should clarify differences between traditional and nontraditional meat. How important are these labeling debates? We are agriculturaleconomists and have published a number of studies examining how consumers respond to changes at the grocery store. One key takeaway is that small labeling changes are unlikely to induce large changes in the way people purchase food. Indeed, we believe restrictions on what can be called meat could ultimately strengthen pushback against the meat industry. Consumers want labels Academic studies of other food technologies, such as genetically modified organisms, have found that consumers ...
Topic summary contributed by volunteer(s): Linda The U.S. federal dietary guidelines have been challenged by the salt, sugar, dairy, egg, and meat industries since the release of the first recommendations in 1977. These fights continue today with the recent sugar industry attack on the WHOs recommendation to limit the intake of added sugars, the egg industry fight against the American Heart Associations recommendation to consume less eggs for heart health, and the meat industry prevention of any discussion on the scientific research for the health consequences of eating meat during the creation of the 2010 dietary guidelines. Food industries have even funded an analysis of misleadng studies in an attempt to prove that there is no significant evidence of health risk from saturated fat.. Some findings have been widely adopted by the guidelines committee such as the fact that dry peas, lentils, chickpeas, and beans are excellent for optimizing diabetes control. In general, the latest U.S. ...

The meat-packing industry is currently in a mode of scaling back: ramping down kill capacity and herd size in an attempt to boost retail prices. According to the AP report, local citizens seemed skeptical that the plant would reopen.. Theyll be applying for unemployment and food stamps if the plant closes, a local pastor told AP. Its really going to hurt and this town is already hurting.. The meat industrys business model of settling in economically depressed areas and then pitting the people there against undocumented workers from Mexico and points south deserves to be investigated at length.. For now, another detail caught my eye: the 88,000 pounds of anhydrous ammonia that AP reports had been stored at the plant. Anhydrous ammonia is nasty stuff - its essentially the ammonia you used to keep under your kitchen sink, but minus the water. Derived from natural gas, its also what industrial-scale farmers use to replenish nitrogen in fields.. Most of the plants anhydrous ammonia ...

Recombinant baculovirus isolates BmNPVluc and AcNPVluc (Kopylova-Sviridova et al., 1990) expressing the luc gene in Bombyx mori N-4, and in Sf 9 and Trichoplusia ni 368 cells, respectively, were studied. Luc gene expression driven by baculovirus regulatory elements was detected by enzyme and photometric assays. The expression of recombinant AcNPVluc and BmNPVluc genes in infected larvae of the cabbage looper, T. ni and the tomato hornworm Manduca sexta was analyzed by low-light video image methods. Expression of the luc gene was detected at high levels in both the lepidopteran cells and in third to fifth instar T. ni larvae. However, no light emission was detected in M. sexta caterpillars. High levels of light emission were detected in T. ni larvae when occlusion bodies containing both wild type and recombinant virus were fed to larvae. The results of these experiments demonstrate that video image analysis can be used to monitor the progression of baculovirus infection in susceptible insect cells and

5. The Power of the Beef Industry. In the U.S., every time a product containing beef is bought, a portion of the cost is a tax on beef. What most people dont know is that this tax on beef goes to the National Cattlemens Beef Association that in turn uses this public money to buy ads encouraging people to eat more beef and to lobby efforts discouraging beef eating. Please visit Big beef. Its incredible how much power the meat industry has been given by the government and the power it has within the government, and therefore the power this industry has on what people eat. While this industry might seem too powerful to ever collapse we ought to remember that great part of their power comes from consumers who support it by eating their products.. ...
The slaughter process refers to the steps followed from the time the live animal is stunned or immobilized through the dressing process to the point that the carcass is placed in refrigeration for cooling. In a practical sense, the meat industry often refers to this period as the conversion of muscle to meat. The fabrication (deboning, cutting) process takes the chilled carcass (considered meat at this point) and cuts it into smaller, more useful components (e.g. wholesale, primal, subprimal, and retail cuts, and trimmings). It is called fabrication because the carcass itself (which is in a form of limited value for consumers) is converted (fabricated) into more useful end products for consumers or raw materials for subsequent processes and products. Finally, certain cuts like hams, and the trimmings generated from fabrication are converted into a variety of value-added, newly created, and uniquely different meat products by a host of technologies including grinding, chopping, curing, smoking, ...
Read full article So far, Belgium has not had to close slaughterhouses due to a coronavirus outbreak among staff members, mainly because the rules are much stricter than in the neighbouring countries, according to the sector.. In neighbouring countries, several slaughterhouses have been closed due to outbreaks, but this is not the case in Belgium. There are much stricter rules for the slaughterhouses, as well as for the housing of migrant workers, said Griet Lemaire, director of the Flemish Information Centre for Agriculture and Horticulture (VILT) on Radio 1 on Monday.. On Sunday, over 600 employees of a slaughterhouse in the Netherlands were quarantined, because 45 of them tested positive for the new coronavirus (Covid-19). Recent weeks also saw outbreaks in Germany, France, Spain and the United States, among others. The working conditions and accommodation of the personnel abroad are the cause, according to Lemaire.. The meat industry is not the most attractive employer. It is not easy to ...
The $2 billion dollar-a-year South Korean dog and cat meat industry, which extinguishes the lives of approximately two and a half million dogs a year for meat or gaesoju, a dog wine or broth, and thousands of despised and doomed cats for so-called health tonics or goyangyeesoju, and soup, operates in a sordid and illicit world where farmers and butchers kill with frightening impunity in the most abominable fashion. Dogs are killed with high-voltage electrocution, which takes anywhere from thirty seconds to three minutes, hanged, and even beaten to death at the request of customers who believe the meat more tender and tastier the greater the suffering (one of the most pernicious of myths), and that the so-called medicinal properties are enhanced. They are most often killed within sight of their cage mates. They are then thrown into a tub of boiling water, often still alive, and then into a rotating drum for the removal of their fur, and finally blow torched. At Moran Market, South Koreas ...
Weve seen the salmonella rates going up from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, up to the 1990s. Weve seen the E. coli and the damage that its done. Those are probably two of the most obvious health effects [of the consolidation of the meat industry]. And there are very high levels of food-borne illness. One in four Americans sickened some time during the year with food-borne illness, 25 percent to 30 percent of those estimated to be from meat; 5,000 deaths. Those are high. You mentioned two pathogenic bacteria, E. coli O157:H7, and salmonella. In terms of the meat and poultry supply, we began testing for E. coli O157:H7 in the early 1990s, both industry and individual companies, as well as the federal government as part of the inspection program.. If you look at their data, the incidence of E. coli in all ground beef has decreased from the early 1990s to the late 1990s. If you look at government data on salmonella in raw meat and poultry products, it has decreased dramatically throughout the ...
In 1949, small business meat processors gathered in Chicago to enter their hams in the First Annual National Ham Show. Sixty-five hams were judged in four classes. This competition started a tradition that is known today as the American Cured Meat Championships (ACMC) - the only national event of its kind in North America.. This event has expanded over the years to cover a wide variety of products including hams, bacon, jerky, and sausages. Now hundreds of products are entered in 25 - 30 classes each year. Meat processors enter their products for evaluation by judges who are meat scientists and specialists in the meat industry. This evaluation provides information for product enhancement that could result in greater sales and business opportunities.. Anyone who is a processor member of the American Association of Meat Processors, produces their own products, and is a registered attendee of the convention, may enter the ACMC competition.. ...

AHDB International Market Development Director Dr Phil Hadley said: The UK has market access for sheep, beef and pig products in over 50 countries and we felt compelled to reassure our export markets of the steps being taken to minimise and risk during these challenging times. Health and quality have always been at the centre of UK meat production, and the coronavirus pandemic has resulted in additional measures being put in place to manage the associated risk. It is important that we communicate the ongoing safety measures operating in UK abattoirs with industry and consumers both at home and overseas. The videos show how the UK meat industry has adopted the British governments test and track strategy. Anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 can get a test, to establish if they have the virus. Track and trace alerts go through a mobile phone app to notify those people who, having been in contact with a positive person, need to self-isolate to help stop the spread of the virus. It also ...

To evaluate the potential of using electronic implants (transponders) for maintaining identity from birth to slaughter, calves born and implanted in Montana were followed through the feedlot phase to their ultimate slaughter at commercial packing plants. At spring branding, 138 calves were implanted with electronic identification transponders positioned underneath the scutiform cartilage at the base of the ear. Four steers died prior to weaning. After weaning, 109 steers were transported to a commercial feedlot i n Kansas (group 1) and the remaining 25 steers (group 2) were maintained at the Montana ranch for 1 year and then placed in a commercial feedlot in Colorado. Following the two feeding periods, steers were slaughtered at commercial packing plants in Colorado or Kansas under Food Safety Inspection Service authority. From implanting to weaning (156 days), retention was 100%, and 98.5% of the implants remained operable. Of the 106 steers that survived in the first group, implant retention ...
Section 11. AGRICULTURAL WASTES RECOVERY OF PROTEIN FROM SLAUGHTERHOUSE EFFLUENTS BY DOUBLE ADJUSTMENT OF pH R. N. Cooper. Section Leader J. M. Russell, Chemist Meat Industry Research Institute of New Zealand (Inc.) Hamilton, New Zealand J. L. Adam. Engineer Ruakura Agricultural Research Station Hamilton, New Zealand The effluent from a slaughterhouse characteristically contains high concentrations of fat and organic nitrogen. Primary treatment of slaughterhouse effluents removes only 20% of the organic nitrogen [ 1 ], reflecting the large proportion that is soluble. Further treatment can therefore be effected only by biological or chemical methods. Chemical treatment of slaughterhouse effluents has been studied for a long time. However, attention has only recently been focused on recovering potentially valuable protein- aceous material from these effluents. All recovery techniques acidify the effluent to a pH between 3 and 5, and these techniques often use protein precipitants such as ...
Aim: Meat adulteration is a serious problem in the meat industry and needs to be tackled to ensure the authenticity of meat products and protect the consumers from being the victims. In view of such likely problem in indigenous meat products of Kashmiri cuisine (Wazwan), the present work was performed to study the detection of beef and buffalo meat in cooked mutton Rista by mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) based multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method under laboratory conditions.. Materials and Methods: Three experimental trials were conducted wherein the products were prepared from pure mutton, beef and buffalo meat, and their admixtures in the ratios of 60:20:20, 80:10:10, 90:05:05 and 98:01:01, respectively.. Results: The primers used in the study amplified the cyt b gene fragments of sizes 124 bp, 472 bp and 585 bp for buffalo, cattle and sheep, respectively. It was possible to detect cattle and buffalo meat at the level of 1% in the mixed meat cooked Rista. The multiplex PCR successfully ...
ONEILL, H.A.; WEBB, E.C.; FRYLINCK, L. and STRYDOM, P.. Urinary catecholamine concentrations in three beef breeds at slaughter. S. Afr. j. anim. sci. [online]. 2012, vol.42, n.5, pp.545-549. ISSN 2221-4062.. Animal welfare has become an important determinant of meat quality with poor animal temperament leading to huge economic losses to the meat industry due to carcass bruising and condemnation. Handling and transport of live animals is a stressful experience for animals. The temperaments of cattle affect their behaviour and differ between breeds, i.e. studies have shown that Bos indicus types are more temperamental than Sanga and Bos taurus types. Catecholamines (CATs) are considered as indicators of stress, because higher concentrations of CATs in brain tissue were noted in animals that are better adapted to stressful situations. In the present study, urinary CATs of three beef breeds were determined immediately post mortem. Brahman cattle represented Bos indicus types, Simmentaler cattle ...

Limited shelf life of meat products due to microbial spoilage is a major problem in meat industry as meat is a good source for growth of microorganisms. Therefore, preservation is essential. Thus, the present study was focused to determine the effect of acetic acid, lactic acid and trisodium phosphate on microbial quality of chicken cold cuts (chicken salami and chicken roll). Samples were randomly collected during the chilling step and treated as groups by immersion in lactic acid (2, 3, 4%), acetic acid (2, 2.5, 3%), trisodium phosphate (8, 10, 12%) for 20 seconds. Samples without any treatment served as the control. All treatments were vaccum packed and stored under chilled condition. Treatments were evaluated for colony forming units (CFU), yeast and molds and pH in 10th, 20th, 30th and 40th day of storage. Based on CFU counts for chicken salami samples on 40th day, acetic acid 2, 2.5, 3% treated samples showed 1.55×105 CFU/g, 1.31×105 CFU/g, 1.16×105 CFU/g, lactic acid 2, 3, 4% treated ...
Coauthor of the book Mad Cow USA (now available in PDF at http://www.prwatch.org/books/madcow.html), Stauber is executive director of the Center for Media and Democracy. He said today: The USDAs latest steps on mad cow disease are pathetic. The U.S. government is repeating the mistakes Britain made 15 years ago. The British have since defeated mad cow disease with a total ban on feeding slaughterhouse waste to livestock and testing millions of cattle before consumption. This is what the U.S. must do, but the political will to confront the powerful meat industry is lacking. Today in the U.S. farmers legally feed billions of pounds of slaughterhouse waste to cattle, and even wean calves on cattle blood protein. I suspect the recent cases of mad cow disease in the U.S. and Canada are just the tip of an iceberg, one that will continue to grow until dangerous feeding practices are completely banned ...
The standard American diet is usually centered around red meat. But when red meat is consumed in excess quantities, it can cause a person to have higher than normal levels of cholesterol and saturated fats. Diets rich in animal fats are associated with higher risks for obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, hypertension, and several types of cancer. Red meat also contains carnitine, which causes hardening of the arteries, and studies show that increased carnitine is associated with increased cardiovascular disease. A meat diet may cause an excess of iron, which studies show can increase your chances for Alzheimers disease and colorectal cancer. Most of the processed meat (lunchmeat) is unhealthy because it contains carcinogenic compounds.. The FDA reports that foods high in protein such as meat, poultry, and seafood can cause outbreaks of foodborne illnesses like E.coli and salmonella. Additives are used in the meat industry to enhance the color and appearance of meat, like pink ...
A recent study by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization says cattle raised for beef production play a key role in maintaining a sustainable food system.. Meat industry publication Meatingplace reports that the research essentially counters claims that beef production consumes too much human-edible feed, finding that cattle are net contributors to the global protein supply, and concludes that modest yield improvements can reduce further land expansion for feed production.. The research shows that 86 percent of the feed cattle consume is grasses grown on marginal lands, not edible to humans. The study says: Livestock play, and will continue to play, a critical role in adding value to these residual products, a large share of which could otherwise be an environmental burden.. ...
I devoted this months (first Sunday) Food Matters column in the San Francisco Chronicle to the current hot-button issue, pink slime.. Q: I keep hearing about pink slime being fed to school kids. How could anyone even think about putting something so disgusting in school lunches?. A: Pink slime is the pejorative term for lean finely textured beef, a product designed to recover useful bits from carcass trimmings. These are warmed, centrifuged to remove the fat, treated with ammonium hydroxide gas to kill pathogens and compressed into blocks that are frozen for later use.. The final product is pink; therefore, its meat - or so says the meat industry. And from a strictly nutritional standpoint, it is. But from any other standpoint, LFTB creates a dilemma.. For one thing, it solves an enormous problem for meat producers. Only about half the weight of the 34 million cattle slaughtered each year is considered fit for human consumption. The rest has to be burned, buried in landfills or sold cheaply ...
A Colorado company recalled the equivalent of 1.86 million Quarter Pounders. In Meat Wagon, we round up the latest outrages of the meat and livestock industries.. -------------. Sometimes I think I write a little too much about the meat industry. But the news it generates is so consistently grave, and so generally underreported, that I cant resist. Moreover, outbreaks of E. coli and MRSA are really ecological markers-feedback that our way of producing meat is deeply unsustainable and really quite dangerous. We ignore these news flashes from our ecoystem at our peril. So I scribble on.. Heres the latest: In Colorado, 14 people have fallen ill from hamburger meat tainted with antibiotic-resistent salmonella, the Boulder newspaper Daily Camera reports. (Note that antibiotic-resistent salmonella is distinct from MRSA, an antibiotic-resistant staph infection, increasingly associated with industrial meat production, that kills 20,000 Americans each year-more than AIDS.). The bad burger came from a ...
23,000 Americans will die this year from antibiotic-resistant infections; 80 percent of antibiotics in the U.S. are used by the meat industry. Can Big Ag and Big Pharma change in time to save this critical medicine for humans?. One evening in June 2011, at their home in a suburb of Portland, Ore., Melissa Lee and her husband sat down to a dinner of spaghetti and meatballs with their 10-month-old daughter. It was one of the first times Ruby Lee ever tasted meat. What followed, over the next few days, was a new parents nightmare of fever, diarrhea, listlessness, and doctors-culminating in an urgent phone call about blood test results: Get Ruby to the hospital now.. Rubys bloodstream was infected with a virulent bacterial strain, Salmonella Heidelberg, from the ground turkey she had eaten. She was one of 136 victims in that outbreak and among the 47.8 million cases, including 3,037 deaths, of food-borne illnesses in the United States that year. Medical detective work and DNA fingerprinting soon ...

Cancer is killer number two. Ah, the dreaded C word -- but look at this hopeful science. According to the largest forward-looking study on diet and cancer so far performed, the incidence of all cancers combined is lower among vegetarians. The link between meat and cancer is such that even a paper published in the journal Meat Science recently asked, Should we become vegetarians, or can we make meat safer? There are a bunch of additives under investigation to suppress the toxic effects the blood-based heme iron, for example, which could provide what they called an acceptable way to prevent cancer. Why not just reduce meat consumption? The meat science researchers noted that if such public health guidance were adhered to, Cancer incidence may be reduced, but farmers and [the] meat industry would suffer important economical problems... Hmmm, so Big Ag chooses profit over health; what a surprise ...
SAUDI ARABIA - Troubled French poultry group Doux is close to signing a rescue deal whereby its main client, Saudi food distributor Almunajem, will take a minority stake, a moment of rare good news for a French meat industry shaken by plant closures.
Finnish meat company Atria has said it is on track with its strategy for the Baltic rim after it signed a letter of intent to buy a majority stake in Valga Meat Industry, Estonias second-largest red meat company.
Despite the current import levy on chicken breast fillet, Brazil and now also Ukraine can be competitive at the EU market at this moment. The offer price of breast fillet in 2015 of Brazil and Ukraine was equal to or lower than the average EU price. In a scenario with 50% lower import levies and 10% lower exchange rate all countries in the study (Brazil, Ukraine and also Thailand, Argentina, the USA, and Russia) have a lower offer price for breast fillet compared to the EU poultry meat industry. This shows the report of Wageningen Economic Research examining how lowering import levies impacts the competitiveness of the EU poultry industry.
I could eat this pasta every day of the week. Its so simple but such a delicious combination of flavors with the sweetness of the squash, the crisp kale, the hint of thyme and white wine, and the salty, cheesy Parmesan.. I try to make one meatless meal a week - eating a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables and low in processed and red meats is proven to help you maintain a healthy weight and lower your risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. The meat industry generates vast amounts of greenhouse gas emissions, so its also good for the environment to try to cut out some of the meat from your weekly diet. But I always worry whether my husband Chris (a major meat-and-potatoes lover) will like any of my new vegetarian meal creations. This is one he loves. And the protein from the cheese and whole wheat pasta - along with the fiber from all of the vegetables - make it very satisfying and filling too.. ...
The halal meat industry has had a mammoth amount of media coverage in the last few weeks.

Mayor Giuseppe Sala of Milan: Tell Sister City, Daegu, South Korea, That Were Opposed to the Torture and Consumption of Dogs and Cats.. City of Milan, we need to make you aware of the illegal and immoral dog and cat meat trade operating within the boundaries of your Sister city, Daegu, South Korea. We urge you to take action, set the right example and work with us to change this.. South Korea is the home to global companies, such as Hyundai, Kia, Samsung, LG, Daewoo, SK and POSCO, which is why it is so shocking that an estimated 2.5 million dogs are tortured and slaughtered every year within South Korea, because of the greed of dog eaters and the dog meat industry; while the majority of those Koreans, who dont actually participate in this offensive trade, show a profound indifference by doing nothing at all to stop it.. We know how loyal and faithful our dogs across the world are; and we all ask a lot of them - they serve us in innumerable ways: farm work, war work, police and guard duties, ...

On the 07th of January 2019 the Department declared officially that a spillage of foot and mouth disease (FMD) has occurred in Vhembe district, in Limpopo. This was confirmed after cases were reported to our State Vets who therefore conducted tests to cattle in the area. The positive location is just outside the FMD Control Zone, and more specifically, in the high surveillance area of the FMD Free Zone. Read more …. ...
This is a heart warming video of cows that were set free after a long winter season. Cows should be free to roam in large fields, and be completely free. Looking at the emotional response of excitement in this video is very heart warming. Although its nice that science has finally recognized the consciousness of animals, its something we already recognize from the first time we interact with an animal. Not everything needs to be proven by science in order to validate it as truth. A lot of information science has yet to confirm is already known inside of us and just plain obvious, weve just forgotten how to listen to listen to our hearts. All animals are emotional beings who feel no less than we do. Looking into the modern day meat industry can be heart breaking, the way we treat animals here on planet Earth, if you see it with your own eyes will leave you speechless. The time when humans look upon the murder of animals as they do the murder of men and women is fast approaching. This is not ...

ANALYSIS - The threat of foot and mouth disease to the global livestock and meat industry is never far away, writes Chris Harris.
Within the present study, regulation of the nonribosomal synthesis of the depsipeptide toxin cereulide was characterized on a molecular level. Cereulide is produced by emetic Bacillus cereus strains and intoxications occasionally lead to lethal food-borne illnesses. Therefore, a lux-based reporter strain was used to establish a novel and rapid risk assessment system to monitor toxin synthesis in food. Furthermore, this study shows that long-chain polyphosphates, which are widely used food additives in the dairy and meat industry, inhibit cereulide synthesis in a targeted manner. By means of molecular and biochemical techniques, it was shown that cereulide synthesis is controlled by complex regulatory networks that integrate extrinsic as well as intrinsic factors, such as transcriptional regulators and the metabolic cell status. This knowledge might contribute to improve food safety and consumer protection concepts in the future « ...
The consequences of Confined Animal Feeding Operations. A report released last week by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), titled CAFOs Uncovered: The Untold Costs of Confined Animal Feeding Operations, exposed the negative effects that Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) have on humans, animals and the environment. Margaret Mellon, director of UCSs Food and Environment Program said, If CAFOs were forced to pay for the ripple effects of harm they have caused, they wouldnt be dominating the U.S. meat industry like they are today.. Your question and comments are ...
Feed Efficiency in the Beef Industry provides a thorough and concise overview of feed efficiency in beef cattle. It frames the great importance of feed efficiency to the industry and details the latest findings of the many scientific disciplines that intersect and aim to improve efficient and sustainable production of nutritious beef. The vast majority of production costs are directly tied to feed. With increased demand for grains to feed a rapidly increasing world population and to supply a new demand for alternative fuels, feed costs continue to increase. In recent years, the negative environmental impacts of inefficient feeding have also been realized; as such feed efficiency is an important factor in both economic viability and environmental sustainability of cattle production.. Feed Efficiency in the Beef Industry covers a broad range of topics ranging from economic evaluation of feed efficiency to the physiological and genetic bases of efficient conversion of feed to high quality beef. ...

The closure of two major U.S. packing plants because of an ongoing dispute over mandatory meat labels could hurt Canadas livestock industry, Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz warned Wednesday.. Thats very concerning to Canadian producers because 70 per cent of our processing capacity is American, Ritz said. So, as these plants close it gives us less opportunity to make use of that.. Two more plants are on shaky ground because they cant get enough supply, Ritz said during a wrap up teleconference from Mexico.. The minister was in Mexico for a joint agriculture meeting with Mexicos Secretary of Agriculture Enrique Martínez y Martínez and American Agricultural Secretary Tom Vilsack.. Conversation, Ritz told reporters, focused largely on U.S mandatory country-of-origin labeling (COOL), a divisive policy thats landed all three countries in front of the World Trade Organization twice.. First introduced in 2008, COOL requires all producers and processors identify where an animal is born, ...
