Factory farms and E. Coli

According to a television story that Ray Wilson of New Middletown watched, 3.5 percent of all meat sold contains deadly E.coli bacteria, he tells the News-Sentinel.
He knows that may not seem like much, but he then says that when you consider that 10 billion animals are slaughtered every year, that translates to 350 million animals with E.coli.
Wilson explains to the News Sentinel that he feels that the rise in contamination is due to industrialized factory farming and mass-production. His recommendation is to go completely vegetarian, or if you must have meat, to eat only free-range animals.
