The FDA knows this and is doing little about the nationwide danger. The FDA studied 30 antibiotics put into animal feed and found that 18 of the studied antibiotics opened humans to high risk. I have long been writing on just this subject and advising you to avoid big box supermarkets and confinement-raised beef. Words like Angus, prime and natural are marketing monikers and do not equate to quality.
Instead look for 100% grass-fed-to-finish beef. Such beef is increasingly available at farmers markets and specialty food stores and butchers, or on line at purveyors like U.S. Wellness Meats. On our small island here in Key West, we have no problem, thanks to Jimmy Weekly’s Faustos Food Palace. The grass-fed-to-finish beef we buy here is among the best we’ve had anywhere. Moreover local restaurants like 915 and Salute on the Beach have also gotten the message and serve great grass-fed burgers. Here at Al Jazeera America you get the breaking news on the disgrace of antibiotic-packed animal feed.
