Testing Shows Packaged Meats Often Tainted With C. Difficile Bacteria

A recent study conducted by scientists at the University of Arizona has revealed that as much as 40% of the packaged meats sold in grocery stores is contaminated with C. Difficile, a potentially deadly intestinal germ increasingly found in hospitals.  Nearly 30 percent of the contaminated samples of ground beef, pork and turkey and ready-to-eat meats like summer sausage were identical or closely related to a super-toxic strain of C. Diff. that is being blamed for growing rates of illness and death in the United States.
