Despite massive public opposition, the Trump administration's USDA is moving forward with plans to privatize and deregulate meat inspection. Not only are they privatizing work performed by USDA inspectors, they are removing caps on slaughter line speeds and pushing forward without a Salmonella testing standard in place.
But you can help. Food safety allies in Congress are freezing funding for implementation of the rule while the Office of the Inspector General investigates USDA’s actions during the rulemaking. Help block funding for the rule by writing your member of Congress and urging them to support the amendment.
