Evidence of Toxic Bug in Grocery Meat

Supergerm C. diff could be in your grocery meat.

It's not just in hospitals anymore.

It's a nasty germ and now it turns out that it may be in about a third of the meat you buy at the grocery store.


Clostridium difficile used to be a benign bacteria that caused easily treated diarrhea. But like MRSA, it's become super toxic as it's grown antibiotic resistant.

Now a University of Arizona scientist says he's found these toxic strains in pork, turkey, ground beef and processed meat.

But can it be transmitted through food?

The CDC says it's never seen such a case, but it says that doesn't mean it can't happen.
