Public Safety Group Calls for Ban of Drug-Resistant Salmonella

Business Week reports that The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a non-profit organization, is pressuring the Obama administration to ban sales of uncooked meat containing drug-resistant salmonella after the Hannaford Supermarkets outbreak that occurred across seven states and sickened at least twenty persons. The Center wants the government to ban four strains of salmonella, including Salmonella Typhimurium, the type found in ground beef sold at Hannaford stores that was recalled voluntarily by Hannaford in December 2011. The United States Department of Agriculture has yet to comment on the petition

The article notes that normal salmonella causes approximately 1 million illnesses a year, accumulating costs of about $365 million.
