Antibiotic Resistant Kosher Chicken

A Troubling Report

Fight_Back

We are always searching for the cleanest, safest, highest quality kosher poultry brands. That is why we were concerned with the report we received last week in a study funded and published by food scientists from the University of Arizona, The study outlines the prevalence of antibiotic-resistant E. coli bacteria in retail chicken, comparing conventional, organic, kosher, and raised without antibiotics. KosherEye spoke with Jack Millman, author of the study and a student at The University of Arizona. Millman, along with a team of scientists from the university, will be delving further into the issue. They declined to disclose the brand names involved in the research. We will be following up.

The report summary can be found here.
See more at here.

This week we also read about a salmonella outbreak sourced to a non-kosher California poultry plant.

Do practice safe handling, storage and cooking to avoid contamination from poultry and meat bacteria. Please see the following for poultry safe handling and preparation tips:

KosherEye is happy to support jgives.

Our lives are so busy that it's often hard to find the time to relax let alone to give tzedakah. Along with the founders of jdeal, we introduce a new philanthropic tool – jgives.com, a website where you can sift through jgives approved charities so you can easily choose where to make your donation. The best part is after one donation, your payment details are securely stored so that next time it's just a click!

This week is the 10 days of repentance (Aseret Yemei Teshuva), and jgives wants to make sure that everyone is a part of this new giving revolution. So, for this week (September 9th – September 13th), every donor will be entered into a draw to win a further donation of $50 to the charity of their choice AND a further $50 credit for jdeal as a reward for giving!

This is a chance not to miss out on. With a simple donation of as little as $9, you could have the chance to give $50 to your charity of choice!

Rosh Hashanah Symbolic Foods

An explanation of some of the symbolic foods of Rosh Hashanah
From various sources

We eat different vegetables, fruits and other foods whose names are an allusion for the good:

  • We dip apples in honey to signify our wish for a "good and sweet new year."
  • We eat beans (rubiyah) to 'increase' and carrots (mehren in yiddish) to 'increase'-we ask the Almighty for our merits to increase; some believe these indicate fertility and prosperity.
  • We eat leeks, which in aramaic are karasai, also meaning 'to cut off'. We ask Hashem to cut off our enemies.
  • We eat beets, in aramaic silka, also meaning 'remove' and pray that our adversaries be removed.
  • We eat dates, in aramaic tamrai, and we ask Hashem that our enemies be consumed (yetamu).
  • We eat gourds (eg. Pumpkin, squash), in aramaic kara, and ask the Almighty to tear (kara) our sentences and proclaim (kara) our merits.
  • We eat pomegranates and ask that our merits should be as numerous as the "613" seeds of a pomegranate.
  • We eat fish heads with a request to be fruitful and multiply like fish.
  • We eat (or at least mention) the head of a sheep with the wish that the Jewish people should be the leaders.

Real Honey for Rosh Hashanah

Chances are the honey you purchased to dip apples into on Rosh Hashana is not truly honey. According to Food Safety News (www.foodsafetynews.com), which tested over 60 honey containers sold in 10 states and the District of Columbia, 76 percent of samples bought at groceries and 77 percent from large retail chain stores had all the pollen removed, which is the only real way to identify the source of honey. All honey sold in drugstores and given out in fast food restaurants had been ultrafiltered, which heats, sometimes waters down and then filters the honey to remove pollen. This is different from traditional straining methods that retain pollen. 

Although the Food and Drug Administration states that any product without pollen is not honey, the FDA does not inspect honey, and illegal, contaminated honey from China—many hiding unhealthy sweeteners and antibiotics—has flooded the North American market.

honey_dipper_into_honey_jar

This article is reprinted from Hadassah Magazine, and certainly offers food for thought when purchasing honey. There are so many varieties. Bee educated....to make a sweet choice!

Vaughn Bryant, professor at Texas A&M University and a pollen expert who analyzed the 60 containers, found the full amount of pollen in every honey sample from farmers' markets, food cooperatives and health stores like Trader Joe's; 71 percent of organic samples from major grocery chains passed the test.

Raw, unprocessed honey that is harvested by beekeepers has medicinal properties and antiallergenic benefits. It contains nutrients, enzymes and antioxidants and appears in many varieties, depending on the flowers and plants where bees seek their nectar. —Sara Trappler Spielman.
