Companies like Aldi and Lidl have announced that they will strive for improvements in their suppliers’ animal husbandry by 2030. The German Environmental Aid (DUH) is now uncovering what the discounters want to sell to consumers until then. The DUH tested poultry meat at husbandry level 2 (stable housing plus). The laboratory results show that the meat is sometimes heavily contaminated with pathogens with particularly dangerous antibiotic resistance. At the same time, in some cases, the meat is even advertised with seals from the Tierwohl Initiative. The EU Parliament will decide in September on legal regulations on antibiotics in animals in the meat industry.
Reinhild Benning, agricultural expert at DUH, and Katharina Schaufler from the University of Greifswald explain how heavily the meat is contaminated, which corporations produced it and what health risks it poses. Frank Montgomery, President of the Standing Committee of Doctors of the European Union and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the World Medical Association, describes which countermeasures are being discussed in the political arena. Due to the restrictions caused by the corona pandemic, the press conference will take place digitally via Zoom. Please register at email@example.com.
