Meat Industry Opposes New Food Safety Regulations

Meat Industry Opposes New Food Safety Regulations

 In Blog

Here’s an article from Bloomberg that shows the meat industry bellyaching over new food safety regulations:

Congress is increasing the food-safety budget to add inspection resources and considering more than a dozen proposals to combat food-borne illness. They include legislation, approved by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, to grant the Food and Drug Administration authority to order food recalls even when a company refuses to cooperate.

[American Meat Institute President J Patrick Boyle] said the proposal would be redundant, given the incentives that already exist for the current voluntary recall system.

I wonder what fantasy land Boyle inhabits in which people believe the existing voluntary recall system is working. Link.
