Report: Antibiotic-resistant bacteria found on meat


There are some things to keep in mind before firing up the grill.

A new government watchdog report shows more than three-quarters of meat sold in US supermarkets has antibiotic-resistant bacteria. 

The Environmental Working Group’s analysis found so-called “Superbugs” on almost 80 percent of ground turkey sampled, 62 percent of ground beef and on more than a third of chicken breasts.

Researchers say people need to be vigilant about food safety, especially when cooking for children, pregnant women and people with compromised immune systems.
