My wife got me to watch the documentary "Food, Inc" yesterday. Normally I have a pretty high tolerance for things, and it takes a lot to impact my appetite, but this movie is killing me. The parts about how easy / prevalent E. Coli and Salmonella contamination was bad, but when they got into the ammonia treated beef I swear I questioned if I could ever eat ground beef again.
Idiot’s bliss, and I’ve just been kicked out of Eden.
I know grass fed pretty much takes care of this issue, but where I live its pretty damn difficult to find GF foods. The closest we usually get is “Natural,” “Organic,” or “Vegetarian Fed” meats, all of which mean next to nothing as far as I can tell.
Please help me, PaleoHacks, is there ANY way to tell if ground beef contains the ammonia-treated sludge? Any brands who are worse about this than others? Know of any responsible meat/egg farms in the south/central Texas area?
