Default Sarcocystis from raw meat

My dog tested positive for this parasite, our vet told us it was from the raw meat we gave him and told us not to give it to him anymore. I am sold on the raw diet you don't have to convince me BUT my husband is not and now he will no longer support me feeding it and admittedly I am a little nervous now knowing my dog got this because I thought raw was better. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I know freezing can kill it but what else could be in the meat that could cause problems? All that work I did to convince my husband raw was the way to go all in the toilet... This is more a vent I guess, no stories you could tell would ever convince him unless it's backed up by actual scientific evidence everything else is just anecdotal to him.

*sigh*
