News regarding the US banning raw meat products had gone viral on the Internet. A post from a certain Dr. Mercola has spread saying the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) realized how deadly raw meat is following a ban on raw milk.

A phony statement followed saying, “The FDA and US Department of Agriculture (USDA) will be joining forces to assure "undisputable safety" of all meats sold to Americans. And the only feasible way to assure pathogen-free meats, the agencies claim, is to ban raw meat sales. The joint agency agenda is reportedly slated to take effect as early as next year, at which point all meats sold within the US will be pre-cooked.”

The post added that local harvest and farmer’s markets are the best places to get fresh food. After all, raw meat brings a lot of deadly diseases.

Believe it or not, this is a prank! Happy April Fools’ Day!
