(NBC) -
The World Health Organization received a serious amount of backlash in the days after making a statement saying processed meats have been linked to colorectal cancer.
The WHO issued a statement Thursday clarifying their latest review "does not ask people to stop eating processed meats."
They suggest reducing the amount of processed meat saying "reducing consumption of these products can reduce the risk of colorectal cancer."
The organization says they plan to take another look at how meat plays out in a healthy diet next year.
