Food safety experts downplayed the findings, noting that the type of E. coli found in the chicken was not the kind that threatened public health.
"What's surprising to me is that they didn't find more," Dr. Michael Doyle, director of the Center for Food Safety at the University of Georgia, told the Times. "Poop gets into your food, and not just into meat -- produce is grown in soil fertilized with manure, and there's E. coli in that, too."
