Re: “The E. coli loophole

As you point out - its no secret that E. coli 0157H7 comes from cows. Carol Tucker Foreman said something like "...AND if you follow E coli problems in produce back far enough back... you will eventually bump into a cow". Dr. Crain ,Veriprime CEO, has been working for almost 9 years to get the giant food retailers , fast food chains and packers to use a service designed to make beef (and all food) safer. So far EVERYONE have said "no". No I dont want to be first - to "no" there is no exclusive market advantage.

(Full disclosure.... he is my husband, it is his passion, and 9 years is a long time not to give up)

Members of the Veriprime Beef Food Safety cooperative have one goal to - eliminate E. coli from the food supply.

To do that you start with steps to eliminate it from the nation's cows. How?..... did you know there is a new USDA approved Vaccine that can be given to cows that make them virtually free of E. coli 0157H7? Did you know that feeding probiotics (yes - yogurt for cows) has an additive effect. It is not a pipe dream - members of the European Union have been doing this for years and have made industries like poultry "Salmonella Free"...

over the next few weeks, VeriPrime is rolling out a much more public campaign for major retailers across the country to adopt this as a new industry standard for commercial beef production.....

Retailers can set the goal of eliminating e coli from the food supply - working with the cattlemen themselves - who are ready, willing, and able to work together to begin the process.... now there is a way....for only 1 penny per hamburger , ONE PENNY PER HAMBURGER.... Hope there is a leader (retailer) out there that will say yes.....
