Another Tale Of Pooh Tainted Food; E Coli Outbreak in Calgary

Like us on Facebook:

People’s gut flora is out of whack in Calgary. Reports have been released confirming that there have been 14 recent cases of e coli. Escherichia coli is bacteria is found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms, so no one is surprised that two of these severe tummy-aches have been linked to pork sausage.

Humans put themselves at risk of contracting this sickness through fecal–oral transmission (the scientific term for eating poop) when they work around livestock, consume unpasteurized dairy products, eat under-cooked meat, or drink impure water. That explains why Alberta Health Services finds it necessary to advise anyone who has purchased Hungarian farmer’s sausage made by Paolini’s Sausage & Meats before February 2nd to be sure they’re cooked to an internal temperature of 71 C. That temperature should be able to kill any lingering pooh, er, e coli.

Other prevention methods include washing your hands, being careful to steer clear of cross contamination, and avoiding meat altogether. Yes, there have been some cases of e coli contaminating vegetables too, so make sure to wash anything you’re eating raw thoroughly. At least vegans can be rest assured that faux-meat sausages don’t need to be cooked to any poop-diminishing temperature. But eating too many, because they’re so good, could still upset your stomach. Learn from my mistakes.
