I don't see how buying meat - a foodstuff with a good chance of spoilage that is serious - from an unknown stranger, with no way to track back for complaints, no way to be sure that this meat is safe in any way could even be considered for one minute.

When you buy food from a supermarket, or the local butcher, both are routinely inspected by the Health office to make sure they meet hygiene and cooling standards. You know where the business is if you want to sue them for selling spoiled food or otherwise sub-standard stuff. And still people sell spoiled meat by trucking it around, mixing it or lowering the price (we've had several scandals in Bavaria in the past years, due to lack of inspectors).
