To eat or not to eat
"Hatching superbugs" (August 1-15, 2014) raised the important issue of antibiotics found in poultry. However, I would call the article a half-cooked chicken because it missed a few important points: were the samples taken of raw chicken or cooked chicken? If the samples were of raw chicken, why were samples of cooked chicken not taken for comparison? Were all the samples of chicken from Indian poultry? If yes, why were samples of imported chicken not considered? Based on incomplete analysis and cosmetic research, it would not be wise to label government guidelines weak and inconsequential.
