Healthy chicken is available, just not always in your supermarket.
Think the pink slime scandal is gross? There's even more unappetizing news, this time from the poultry department. By testing feathers, researchers from Johns Hopkins University found that "healthy chicken" sold in your supermarket could have very well been raised on a steady diet of prescription, over-the-counter, and even banned drugs.
The contaminated chicken report is the latest in a string of findings suggesting the industrial food system that supplies most supermarkets routinely engages in practices that could put consumers at risk.
