Sign the petition: Stop the USDA's dangerous new food safety rule

Sign the petition: Stop the USDA's dangerous new food safety rule | Animal Science | Scoop.it
I just took action to demand that the USDA scrap its dangerous new poultry modernization rule, which is bad for food safety and bad for workers. I think you should too!
Cassandra Coronado's insight:

The USDA is planning on implamenting a new rule in which would increase the speed of the line of the conveyer belt. Increasing the speed would cause the poultry processors to not be able to inspect the food on the conveyer belt quick enough. If the processers are not able to completely inspect the food then the food would be sent to be packaged and sold to consumers without the knowing if the food is completely safe.
