What has happened to the FDA??? - Page 2

post #31 of 33

I recently visited the local processing plant I buy much of our meat from and he HAS to have a USDA inspector on premises whenever they are slaughtering. I even met him. I've been to several processing plants/slaughterhouses and have always seen an inspector. 

 

I don't know where this meat inspectors "phase out" thing got started, but it is simply not true. Poultry may be one thing, but Beef/lamb/pork seems to be another. I think we should correct this so that no further mis-information gets out. 

 

Also, I think the FDA is being confused with the USDA....the Food and Drug Administration is not the same as the US Department of Agriculture. 

 

 

Again, I would love to see some sources on this, I haven't been able to find anything.

This video touches on the subject of poultry inspection. A reliable source IMO.  I originally thought that they said that inspectors are no longer required in poultry slaughter plants (i was mistaken)

I get these http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm464293.htm?source=govdelivery&utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery

in my email almost everyday.

 

Lots of times it is stuff that seems ridiculous (like some wonder drug OTC diet pills)  but it helps to get a heads up when there is an outbreak of something or other within my fresh pantry items.

It can take weeks for them to determine where a specific problem came from so I just pitch what I have then wait and see.
