I ‘stole’ this chart from Everything You Need to Know About Fast Food. Even though you can’t (or at least *I* can’t!) read the fine print at the bottom of that poster, I think the rest of it speaks for itself. One of the things I noticed in particular from this is something I’d heard before, that fast food burgers (as well as ground beef from the majority of grocery stores) is made up of bits of hundreds of cows, which greatly increases the possibility of contamination. Only one diseased animal in the mix can contaminate untold numbers of hamburger patties!
Happy to say the burgers at our house are made from one animal. Even when we’re purchasing burger patties or ground beef, we buy it from a local butcher shop where the same thing holds true, and at a price similar to the grocery store.
How about you? Anything on this chart jump out at you?
