I’m old enough to remember in 1993 the Jack-in-the-Box e-coli disaster. E coli was found in hamburger meat sold by Jack in the box where 4 people died and 700 were made very sick. You cannot expect an industry to be its own watchdog. The rules are being made in the dark. USDA Inspectors have to have at least a 4 year degree. The new rules would allow people with high school education’s to inspect our foods. Employees are less likely to report problems to their company and fear of retaliation. This is dangerous and must not happen but if it does we will be reducing climate by not eating meat because it’s going to become dangerous.
Self inspections don’t work, ask Boeing.

Buyer beware of Tyson products in the future.
