The Administration is proposing the implementation of “new methods in
poultry inspection” to compensate for the reduced number of inspectors.
This overhaul would speed up poultry inspection lines, reduce
the number of federal inspectors by 40%, and allow the increased use of
extremely toxic and dangerous chemicals whether chickens are contaminated or
not. Federal poultry inspectors are getting extremely sick—and even dying—from
the chemicals used, and now workers will be exposed to larger amounts of
“sanitizing” chemicals than ever before.
Ask President Obama
and Secretary Vilsack not to finalize these new “modernized” and “streamlined”
regulations! The rules should instead emphasize the need for slower line
speeds, cleaner facilities, more inspections, and better-trained employees.
