Organic Chicken Safer - Another Reason To Support Non-GMO Products

Dear Folks,

Organic Chicken has far less salmonella than traditionally raised.  In a study published in the Journal Foodborne Pathogens and Diseases traditionally raised chickens had almost 7 times the incidents of salmonella as organic raised AND the non-organic salmonella types were antibiotic resistant, but not the types occurring in the organic-raised birds.

It goes without saying this also is relative to the eggs laid by the birds.

Another reason to press our representatives and the USDA and FDA to make GMO labeling required and to enforce with penalties any GMO suppliers and growers who contaminate organic farms and ranches.

While not every supplier of eggs or chickens is certified organic, those that follow the same principals of raising and handling would have the same healthier eggs etc.
