Meat Industry Lacks Inspectors
The Food Safety and Inspection
Service (FSIS), which regulates meat (including poultry) and egg
production is seriously overworking their meat inspectors due to the
at least 1,000 vacancies that need to be filled.
One veteran inspector said, "We
don't have enough inspectors, but we have too much management. The
inspectors are short all the time and getting spread thinner and
Another said, "They [meatpacking
companies] write their own plan,"… "They write everything for
themselves. We're 'monitoring' that now. It's just a joke. We mostly
check paper now. You can put anything you want on paper."

Food inspectors overwhelmed
It is no surprise
that the mass processing of meat products, and the lack of enough
inspectors, has lead to contaminated animal products allowed to
reach the public. The meat industry slaughters 12 billion animals
every year in the US, causing unimaginable suffering to God's
animals, polluting the environment and contributing with human
health deterioration. Adopting a plant-based diet would help solve
many of these problems.
