Scientists Discover New MRSA Superbug In Cow’s Milk

Reuters is reporting that scientists have found a new, ultra-powerful strain of MRSA in cow’s milk in swab samples from humans. What’s most alarming is that this particular strain cannot be detected by standard tests and is resistant to antibiotics. However, researchers contend that the bug is unlikely to cause infections by infiltrating the food system through milk, as pasteurization should prevent any risk of the disease entering the food chain.
