Michigan Reps. John D. Dingell and Bart Stupak, Dem. are urging meatpacking companies and Safeway to stop the practice of packaging meat in carbon monoxide gas. This practice makes the meat appear fresher because it will not turn brown as quickly. Although there are no known health-risks associated with carbon monoxide, consumers can be tricked into purchasing unhealthy meat, which can lead to food poisoning. Safeway has responded by voluntarily pulling treated meat from its shelves.
