Consumer Reports Tests: Bacteria on Turkey Raised Without Antibiotics Showed Significantly Less Antibiotic Resistance than Bacteria Conventional Turkey

roken down by drug, animal species and purpose (growth promotion, disease prevention, disease treatment).

Consumers Union further urges the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), which is charged with ensuring the safety of ground turkey, to do the following:

  •     Reduce its current allowable level of salmonella contamination in ground turkey tests from 49 percent, to at most 12 percent, a standard most of the industry already meets.
  •     Require strains of salmonella that have previously caused human illness, and that are also antibiotic resistant, to be treated as adulterants.
  •     Require company HACCP plans – mandated by USDA to limit contamination--to include testing for salmonella strains that may be present and identify antibiotic-resistant organisms as a hazard likely to occur.

Funding for this project was provided by The Pew Charitable Trusts. Any views expressed are those of Consumer Reports and its advocacy arm, Consumers Union, and do not necessarily reflect the views of The Pew Charitable Trusts.
