This Report About Burgers Will Shock You...

Published at 11:19am 3rd May 2016.

Summer is approaching which means BBQ season is upon us.

However if you are planning the perfect feast then consider this - a recent study claims many burgers contain traces of poo.

Consumer Reports looked at the average 458lbs of ground beef from supermarkets in America.

It found all of the beef analysed contained ‘bacteria that signified faecal contamination’.

Further evidence suggests that almost 20% of the beef contained C. perfringens which causes one million cases of food poisoning every year.

Whilst this is apparently happening in the States, there is no evidence to suggest things are the same in the UK.

However Consumer Reports says it you are worried, order your burger well done. This ensures the high temperature has killed the foodborne pathogens which could leave you feeling poorly. Phew!
