    Ecoli can come from human waste. It can come from people not washing their hands before they bag lettuce at the organic lettuce plant.

    It also comes from wild animals. I understand some vegetable producers are cutting down the wildlife habitat strips around their farms to keep deer and wild hogs out of their fields

    Again, if properly cooked, ground beef is safe. Under any circumstances, it's probably safer than fresh veggies simply because there's more oversight (though not enough) in meat packing plants than in vegetable packing facilities.

    •  I said humans too, but that's the same problem (1+ / 0-)

      A broken food system predicated on profit not safety. It doesn't matter the type of food. I strongly suggest you read books like Fast Food Nation, Safe Food, Slaugherhouse, and others if you really think that meat is safe. As for the cooking temperature, you can't cook away Mad Cow.
