Yes, I'm sure htc. I'm sure it was some sort of Clorox solution. You know you can purify drinking water with a few drops of Corox per gallon. It may taste and smell a little funky, but it's safe to drink.
I think it was 60 minutes who sent in several undercover people with concealed cameras. One guy actually got a job in the meat department.
I sure wish we still had some small meat markets like that around here, but they are few and far between. Most of the big stores don't even have butchers anymore.
