That doesn't really make all the difference. "Muh organic kale" can be just as bad if not worse because its straight out of the dirt. Some shit has a higher load of bacteria in general, but some can have lower amounts of more dangerous bacteria like Listeria monocytogenes or E. coli H7O157.

>> No.10672371

Yeah, that's not actually true. Many companies with "shit in food" problems who can't locate the source of their problem in their process will start swabbing the hands of employees until they find the sub-human who doesn't wash after taking a steamy growler and fire them for being an animal.

Anything that sporulates. We regularly put shit in full rolling boil water for half an hour to kill off everything non-spore and then plate the rest to see whats there.

>> No.10672398

Some places are pretty underhanded. Popular-Sandwich-Chain regularly has very high "shit counts" for their products at a particular plant that makes the bread. They made up some fake facade as a chocolate manufacturer to send us samples so that we wouldn't put 2 and 2 together.

>> No.10672409

Common, yes. Clostridium species are fairly ubiquitous. Some make deadly toxins, some do not. Wash your shit before you eat it
> I don't :) but I have cast-iron guts
Of note, Clostridium require anaerobic conditions to grow, so if you're vacuum sealing your sous vide that I know you have you need to be careful there. If the bag seems to be swelling from gas production at all, probably not a good idea to eat it. Same goes for bulging canned food. Essentially the same growth conditions inside the can.

>> No.10672482

Yeah, around 80℃ I believe. Now, OP, tell us about mycotoxins.

>> No.10672518

No, the bacteria is killed but the toxin produced isn't. It's very hard to destroy the toxin.
But, it requires specific conditions (low acidity, warm temperature, anaerobic) to produce toxins.
Even then it's usually at least 2 days in ideal conditions for the toxin to form.

The bacteria on it's own doesn't do shit, and you're probably eating it all the time.

>> No.10672532

Yes and no. One of the major antigens (things that activate your immune response and all the associated phenomena) are just the components that make up the physical structure of bacteria. It isn't specifically true that the bacteria sans toxin is safe to consume.
I think you may find that the spores from the Clostridium can and do grow quite well within the human body, and can produce the toxins there. You're not considering the whole picture.

Again, there's few perfect solutions here, its a biological science. Just saying if your food is swelling from gas production, don't eat it.

Molds are less dangerous, generally speaking. It is also easy to see moldy food and therefore avoid eating it whereas bacteria are invisible and hence a more important concern.

>> No.10672637

Not in this country. When a "product" gets a "THERE DEFINITELY IS X IN THIS" result, the company and the lab are required to inform the FDA, and that stays on record permanently. They either reprocess it, or throw the entire $X00,000 worth into the landfill.
So, we're fairly safe in this country as long as the lab and producer are doing their due diligence.

Good attempt at a bait shitpost.

>> No.10672650

Also of note, is that bacteria could potentially grow to very dangerous levels much more quickly than mold. E.coli can double every 20-some minutes. Mold testing in the lab usually takes almost a week just because it doesn't grow as rapidly even under ideal conditions.
