    These phages are capable of penetrating only Gram-positive bacterial cell walls, and even if there was a way for them to hook onto a human cell membrane, they wouldn't have a way to get in.

    So for now, no danger. Viruses evolve very rapidly, but we are exposed to such viruses in all the raw food we eat, because all organisms have them. Few, if any of them have evolved to be a problem for humans.

    I wouldn't be concerned, but I'd want the FDA to check periodically to see if anyone ends up harboring the virus.

    You can trust the 'scientists' and 'doctors' that get rich off of producing 'safe' viruses to contaminate the food with. If the foods were processed correctly, there would not be a need to contaminate the foods a second time . . .
