Based on past conditioning, the latest developments in the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) fight to provide Americans with the safest foods possible may not come as such a great surprise.
What started as a ban on raw milk to protect consumer health quickly escalated when the federal health authorities realized just how deadly and polluted American meats are. After all, raw meat, whether beef, pork, or poultry, is actually responsible for a vast majority of food-borne illnesses.
