What will happen if USDA inspectors leave big poultry processors to "self-regulate"? The result could be worse than pink slime.
(NOTE FROM @pdjmoo: It is starkly clear that the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) is 100% in bed with corporations and Big Agriculture. It is also clear that they have no intention of honoring their mandate to protect the public. It is also clear that the corporations write the laws and always get their own way. It is also clear that we, the public, the environment and our food chain, are at the mercy of this collusion and unless we stand up it will deteriorate rapidly - particularly with the new "gag" laws going into effect that ban anyone disclosing the truth of what is going on behind closed doors in these confined breeding production houses for our animals )
