Salmonella outbreak in Sweden

Despite Sweden's claim to have poultry stocks with the lowest Salmonella infection rates in the EU, a recent Salmonella outbreak forced the slaughtering of 100,000 birds. The Swedish Poultry Meat Association states on their website that "Sweden has achieved efficient control of Salmonella, despite the industrialization of animal production," ... "Due to the control, both red and white meat produced in Sweden can today be claimed to be virtually free from Salmonella." This outbreak has proven the industry that they cannot let their guards down, especially when they clearly thought it wouldn’t happen to them.

This kind of outbreaks should alert us that working against God’s Creation can only bring misery to humanity and animals. By manipulating and exploiting animals for profit and pleasure we are failing at being good stewards of God’s Creation.
