According to a July 31, 2014 article in the New York Times, the US Department of Agriculture has just released new rules for inspections during processing of poultry. Couple o’ highlights:
1) Poultry processing plants will now be responsible for inspecting themselves.
2) New rules would set the maximum speed of processing lines at inspection points at 140 birds per minute.
What part of this was supposed to make me feel better about industrial chicken?
