Most of the time we don't think much about buying meat other than the cost and if it's fresh. However, you might want to think twice before you pick up meat at the grocery store. Here's one reason:
"Raw meat can harbor E. coli, listeria, and plenty of other nasty pathogens. Plastic wrap isn’t the best defense against the outside world. Ever picked up a package of raw chicken only to have it leak all over the other packages? That right there is how people get sick. While E. coli, listeria, and salmonella infection rates have decreased in recent years, it's always important to wash your hands after touching meat packages and make sure to cook it thoroughly."
