How can MRSA be avoided in handling raw meat?



  1. 0 Votes

    MRSA is spread through open wounds, so as long as you avoid handling raw meats with open wounds you should be fine.  It has been known to occasionally cause pneumonia when inhaled, but for the most part the only way you are at risk is through open wounds.  If you have a bug bite, paper cut, or rash that has caused itching, it is best to cover it up if you are handling raw meats anyway.  Also, make sure you always wash your hands afterwards, and wash anything that has touched the raw meat, which you should do whether or not you are worried about MRSA.
