    Okay, my husband called Schwann's to see if their beef was grass fed. They told him it was all grass fed or hay fed. I know hay is a grass but is it the same thing as grass fed?

     

    Also, on their website, under the ground beef, it reads “Irradiated for your safety.” I looked this up on Wikipedia and it states that

    Food irradiation is the process of exposing food to ionizing radiation[1] to destroy microorganisms, bacteria, viruses, or insects that might be present in the food. Further applications include sprout inhibition, delay of ripening, increase of juice yield, and improvement of re-hydration. Irradiated food does not become radioactive, but in some cases there may be subtle chemical changes.”

     

    Is this normal??? Is this healthy??? If it's a bad thing, how do we know when this has been done to food.  Wikipedia also went on to say this is permitted in over 50 countries.

    If microwave ovens deplete nutrients in food, I'm sure radiation is affecting that in some way too. I wouldn't eat it. It's probably another useless gimic to make money which seems to count more these then then doing what's safe.

    The following is a great resource on food irradiation.  I would highly encourage you to check it out:

    Thanks a bunch for this info!  I'm going to have to search further for meats before I just give up and scream.  🙂  If you tried to prepare meals for my family with all the different health issues and tastes…one of which will not try new foods.  No these are not children.  It would be much easier if I was dealing with kids! Shakespeare could have written a tragic comedy about mealtime in our home.

     

    We did get some from a local farmer.  The bacon was fantastic, but the ground beef was so greasy (so it shrunk A LOT) and had bones in it.  I would like to find ground chuck. I am also trying to feed four people.  As small as those bones are, they get caught in the throat of one (who has damage due to a very bad job with radiation after cancer and now has a very narrow opening for the food to pass) and another with diverticulitis who takes drastic measures to watch anything that can possibly settle into the pockets as he was told if he has another attack, he will have to have emergency surgery to remove part of his colon.
