Study finds alarming rates of fecal matter in locally sold chicken products
According to a recent study done by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, nearly half the chicken products marketed by national brands and sold in supermarkets are contaminated with feces.
Here's more on the Committee's findings:
Two Charleston grocery chains were sampled by the group and 33% of both Harris Teeter and Publix's stock were found to contain chicken products with fecal contamination.
It is importatnt to note, however, that the PCRM as a whole advocates a vegetarian/vegan diet and the sample size of the study consisted of 120 chickens. For more on the issue from both sides of the coin, hop over to this article in The Huffington Post.
