I want microbiologically safe, not ecologically clean food

Maybe something is lost in translation but according to Focus-fen.net the Bulgarian sheep-breeders association is telling folks not to eat raw meat or drink raw milk due to anthrax and brucellosis risks.

Biser Chilingirov, chairperson of Bulgaria’s National Sheep-breeding Association urged stock-breeders and farmers to wear wire mesh gloves when butchering animals to prevent themselves for getting cuts.shaun_the_sheep_wallpaper_border

Biser Chilingirov told people to purchase products directly from farms as they were “ecologically clean”. 

Not sure what that means but I’d like to see some data.
