US Meat Contaminated with Deadly Superbug

Looks like the USDA’s chickens have finally come home to roost.
Nearly half (47%) of all samples of meat and poultry taken from supermarkets across the US reveal contamination from Staphylococcus aureus bacteria.
Staph is bad enough (causing food poisoning and skin infections), but nearly half of the staph bacteria discovered on these meat products is a nasty antibiotic-resistant type known as MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus).
MRSA is running wild in US hospitals
Currently doctors are powerless to stop or easily treat it.
The reason MRSA is so difficult is because it has morphed beyond antibiotics’ ability to defeat it. This is why it’s referred to as a “superbug.”
