Market fish and meat fail health safety tests

Inspections by the Vienna Labor Chamber in Austria have resulted in “unacceptable” findings at fish supermarkets, where three of 20 samples were discovered to contain extremely high levels of bacteria due to high shelf display temperatures. This report follows last month’s meat inspection, in which about half of 21 samples were deemed “unfit for human consumption,” with six being categorizedas hazardousto human health. The worst contained an entero-bacteria, caused by animal fecal contamination, at levels more than 380 times those considered acceptable.

Thank you Vienna LaborChamber for yourthorough inspections for the safety of the public. May such reports help all humanity refrain from consuming any living beings’ flesh in favor of the far morewholesome andfresh plant-based fare.
