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 thinner."

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."

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.
