Huisken Meats is cautioning Minnesotans that small groups of individuals, pretending to have expertise in food safety and food irradiation, are dispersing information that is highly distorted, misleading or untruthful. Huisken Meats asks that consumers and members of the media to contact Minnesota's Department of Health (651-215-1306) or other legitimate professionals in the fields of public health, medicine or nutrition to receive accurate information on food borne diseases, how they are transmitted and the safety and wholesomeness of food irradiation as a means to help eliminate deadly bacteria, such as E. coli in hamburger.
