This is according to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, which found through records it obtained that the country’s largest poultry corporations – including Foster Farms, Perdue Farms, Pilgrim’s Pride, Tyson Foods and Koch Foods – have together sold tens of thousands of meat products contaminated with deadly bacteria like campylobacter and salmonella.
Furthermore, more than half of the contaminated meat products contained antibiotic-resistant strains. (Related: Factory-farmed meat more likely to be contaminated with antibiotic-resistant bacteria – study.)
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) regulations, a certain level of salmonella or campylobacter within poultry may be acceptable, provided that it is found to not cause harm to human beings.
But 12 major U.S. poultry processing companies, including the ones already mentioned, have exceeded the USDA’s standards on multiple occasions since 2018, when the federal government began reporting contamination rates at individual meat processing plants.
Plants that repeatedly exceed the department’s thresholds can be temporarily shut down, according to USDA regulations, but batches of poultry products found to contain life-threatening levels of harmful bacteria need not be recalled.
Campylobacteriosis affects around 1.5 million Americans and kills 100 every year. It is also responsible for around 40 percent of the nation’s cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
The number of infections caused by drug-resistant salmonella in the U.S. is increasing. Between 2004 and 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recorded a 40 percent increase in annual incidence, or around 63,000 more infections each year.
Poultry processing plants responsible for spreading deadly bacteria in food
Not only did the meat products from these companies contain extremely high levels of deadly bacteria, but they were also found to contain other debris in many cases. In some instances, workers were informed by their higher-ups to keep processing rotting meat together with fresh meat. Some workers have reported witnessing chicken being tossed into grinders with dead insects.
Government safety inspectors who are supposed to prevent and report these kinds of food safety violations were found sleeping on the job.
“Since [the meat] comes to us really dirty when we open the box, it’s like, ‘Let’s see what’s inside,'” said one worker at a Tyson Foods plant in Springdale, Arkansas. “Sometimes it has flies, it has crickets, cockroaches in there already frozen.”
The worker added that when he pointed this out to his supervisors, they did not care and ordered him to put the meat – insects included – into the grinder with the other meat.
Government records found by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism also state that, between Jan. 2015 and Aug. 2019, the same offending 12 major U.S. poultry companies broke food safety regulations on at least 145,000 occasions – or more than 80 times a day, on average.
These companies supply most of America’s largest grocery and fast-food chains with their poultry needs. Tyson Foods supplies McDonald’s. Perdue Foods sells its products to Whole Foods. Both companies supply Walmart.
None of the companies mentioned above have received fines or experienced any significant repercussions from the USDA for violating food safety regulations.
Americans being harmed by contaminated meat
Innocent Americans are suffering from infections caused by contaminated meat products. Nine-year-old Jayven Canda-Alvarez was found by his mother, Joanne, one day splayed out on his bedroom floor, unable to move and foaming at the mouth.
Jayven unknowingly ate contaminated meat and was completely paralyzed by Guillain-Barre syndrome linked to campylobacter. He was on a ventilator for weeks and was unable to even speak.
Nearly four years after falling sick, Jayven is still struggling to control his hands and his right foot due to lasting nerve damage.
“Nobody has an answer to if he’ll ever recover fully – if his body will ever be the same,” said Joanne. “One day he’s playing gold, and the next day he’s completely paralyzed. It was the most mind-boggling thing I’ve ever experienced.”
“When they told me that it was from campylobacter I was like, ‘So this bacteria that nobody knows about, that could destroy your whole life, is from chicken or poultry?'” she said. “That’s why I tell people, you need to be careful how you cook your food or where you eat. Because you never know what could happen.”
