Oh no! Now see what the USDA is doing
So now the USDA is proposing to forget about its promise to identify retailers selling recalled meat – unless the health risk is really, really bad. Oh great. The agency now thinks it’s just fine if consumers don’t realize that the meat they bought from local stores was later recalled. It’s up to you to track all those lot numbers and know what you bought and where you bought it. Rumors are that USDA is reneging on its promise to keep consumers better informed under pressure from the food industry. Let’s keep an eye on this one.
