Processed Meats and Smallgoods[edit]

Exotic meats, new meats and 'bush tucker'[edit]


Many meats can become infected with various bacteria, such as Staphylicoccus, Campylobacter Jejuni, and E. Coli O157:H7, when the animal is butchered. This can occur because the intestines can be accidentally cut into, releasing contaminated fecal matter, and butcher's knives can bacome contaminated. Infection chances are greatly reduced by thorough cooking.
