Are there residual antibiotics in packaged chicken meat?

Organized by: bob brown

We hear conflicting claims about the residual amount of chemicals in chicken we buy at the market – and that organic is safer than industrial raised. We will only investigate antibiotics in this effort. It is claimed the antibiotics are broken down and become harmless after 3 days. We will perform a state-of-the-art chemical (metabolite) evaluation of store bought chicken parts. The FDA is not able to test at a level that instills consumer confidence. They have largely delegated oversight to workers at the processing plants.

Antibiotics cause many health issues in our intestines by altering the normal gut bacteria. These issues are known to extend beyond the gut and even to affect the brain. Unknowingly consuming antibiotics may aggravate, or initiate, issues in our gut without us understanding why. The long-term affects of such consumption are also an area of concern.

We will buy several processed chicken packages from different stores and producers -- both industrial raised and organic. Samples will be extracted from the breast meat for testing. We will produce a report that will have statistical significance based on the sample sizes from many other tissue sample studies in the scientific community. A report will be produced from the findings and made available to all contributors to this effort.

Thank you for your support!

This is a concern that requires an independent scientific study by a PhD 4 years ago
