One time when I was at primary school I got sick from eating Cheerios (covered in red skin like Saveloys) at a friend's birthday party. I was never keen to touch them again for years after that and when I heard this story on the radio yesterday, it made me wonder if that was the reason why?

Probably my friend's mother never bothered to cook them hence the bugs were not killed off and I got sick.

One time a few years back I got a case of Campylobacter from some dodgy chicken and it was no laughing matter [xx(]

So far as I'm concerned, there's only one rule to follow with meat and that is to COOK THE DAMN STUFF PROPERLY!!!

Hi, I remember the days of getting the "sav" at the works at Feilding. I wonder if we were standing in line at the same time.

Ew, I'm with Grant on this one, used to deal with food related illnesses (communicable diseases as they were so charmingly called [xx(]) when I was a health inspector, not nice for the people concerned.

I think I heard somewhere a while back that NZ has one of the highest rates of foodborne illness in the developed world?

I had never actually heard of eating raw savs until this article, my mum was a stickler for making sure everything was cooked through and through!

Worst thing with salmonella is that you can also become a carrier and pass it on to all your nearest and dearest for a very long time! [V]

Our butcher used to give me luncheon sausage. Hadn't heard of the sav one before.

I used to love the savs from the butcher. Ours also had a stash of macintosh's toffees which he handed out too.

When my son was a bit smaller the butcher asked me very quietly (out of the way of PC ears of course) if he would like a saveloy, of course he said yes, he loved it and amazingly lived to tell the tale, who would've thought that he could survive a free saveloy!!!!

Each to their own, but it never did me any harm and I got one a week for years, I'm with Chooky.

Arapawa Island Sheep, 2 dogs, 2 cats, one huge Kunekune, 4 tiny Kunekune's and some cool chickens.

'tis a bit like drinking water from a cool mountain stream now, you do it knowing that giardia is a possibility and some people get it and some don't, life is a gamble and you take your chances! [:I]

NZ certainly has the highest rate of Campylobacter associated illness per captia in the developed world which will give us a biased high overall value but with respect to other food borne diseases we are no worse than anywhere else and in many cases better than most.

As kids we had the cheerios from the butcher to munch on while we waited....and we also used to get, from mum, the rind of the bacon to chew before it was cooked....no idea about how the bacon was processed (I was but a nipper at the time) but it was sliced at the butcher while you waitedand came home in a paper parcel!

Whatever do you mean, MM? [:0] Mystery meat with lots of numbered additives all squished up together with a lurid artificially coloured skin and a chemical taste? [}:)]

I must admit I do steal the occasional one when I am at a kids party, along with the chocolate ricies cakes full of lard but oh so yummy [:I]

Hi robbie88 - I would have been in the line in the 50's and early 60's . Back in the day when the works in Feilding was the employer for it seemed most of the town

Meat! tigger! You jest surely! :p I've never liked anything like that, probably goes back to 1977 the Queens Silver Jubilee and Luton's first ever carnival, I had a hotdog, with a frankfurter type sausage, and boy I have never been so ill in my life! I was so bad I was throwing a fit too!! The very thought of them makes me want to heave![xx(]

My partner got terribly sick from eating some uncooked cheerios a few years back.
It knocked the stuffing out of him for weeks. Imagine what it would have done to a small child! He hasn't gone near them since.
