An outbreak happens at a contest and 6 judges get sick from one entry?If they couldn't survive how would we? We need to start thinking of precautions in our ever changing world to make sure our sport survives

I agree. The meat industry is just that, a business. They make their money by production. The more they ship, the more they make. Cleaning time is down time, and lost production. So they want to keep that to a bare minimum.... My brother works in food production and I could tell you some stories that would really make you not want to eat again.....

It is kinda scary as we rely on the slaughter houses to provide us with a safe product to cook for the judges. I agree with you on this one.

Now go make that instant read safety device.... you would make millions on it I am sure.
