Some highlights from the USDA's virtual office hours
We asked you to participate in the USDA's virtual office hours and ask the agency to comment on its proposed poultry rule. The rule would increase line speeds for poultry inspections from 70 birds per minute to more than 175 birds per minute -- or a bird every 1/3 of a second.
Here are some highlights from that chat:
#askUSDA: Under HIMP plans, federal inspectors are replaced with plant workers who are powerless to speak out against their employers!
A17: No deregulation here. This proposal is about doing things better in a more modern way and decreasing Salmonella for consumers ~DrH
Still have a question or a comment on the proposed new poultry rule? You can contact the USDA or send a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Keep following National COSH -- on the blog, on Twitter, and on Facebook -- to keep up.
