Posted November 30, 2018 12:21:13 It’s a story about the difference between a good and a bad chicken: a good one is lean, flavorful, flavorful but not overly fatty.
The kind you can eat at home.
A bad one, however, is tough and raw.
The Italian meat-eating community is on edge over the recent spike in chicken-related illnesses, which has affected at least two people in the state and a dozen others nationwide.
The outbreaks have led to an outpouring of support for the chicken industry and some people are calling for more stringent controls on meat products, such as labeling.
“There is no other kind of chicken that is as healthy,” said Gianni D’Orazio, who owns Italian restaurant The Lava in Milan.
“It is not only the flavor, but also the color, the smell, the taste.”
Italy’s chicken industry, which employs thousands of people, has been a big beneficiary of the country’s growing middle class.
The country has a high level of consumer satisfaction and its economy has also grown quickly.
More than half of Italians are employed in the poultry industry, according to the Italian Meat Institute.
But the country is also grappling with the threat of climate change, which is forcing many to make their chickens’ meat more sustainable.
In the past few years, a string of high-profile poultry outbreaks have raised awareness of the need for stricter controls on the animals.
Italy is a member of the EU, a major producer of meat, and it was recently approved for a market-share deal with Tyson Foods Inc. Tyson Foods will produce more than 15 percent of Italy’s meat exports in 2021.
The deal is expected to save the company around 1.4 million jobs, according the International Trade Union Confederation.
“The meat industry in Italy is really important to our country,” said D’Arazio.
“But it is important to be aware of what is happening in other countries.”
According to Italian authorities, at least eight people have been hospitalized following the spate of illnesses, including two who died.
On Tuesday, a man died of acute gastroenteritis at a hospital in the city of Tuscany, and on Thursday, a woman died of pneumonia at a Milan hospital.
The state government has taken the lead in monitoring outbreaks and issued alerts to consumers, restaurants and other establishments, according a statement from the Ministry of Agriculture.
On Friday, the Ministry also said that the number of confirmed chicken-associated food poisoning cases had risen to 9,871, which was an increase of 8.2 percent compared with last week.
In addition, some 2,000 poultry farms in Italy have been affected, the ministry said.
According to a new report by the U.K.-based Oxfam Institute, at the beginning of October, at about 1.2 billion chickens, an estimated 2.5 million pounds of meat and 2.1 million pounds were being slaughtered in Italy.
The food crisis has been exacerbated by the introduction of mandatory EU quotas on the sale of poultry and meat in 2018, the group said.
