(American Meat Institute)
This week Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) introduced S.1527, which would amend the Federal Meat Inspection Act and the Poultry Products Inspection Act to authorize the Secretary of Agriculture to order the recall of meat and poultry products that are adulterated, misbranded, or otherwise unsafe.
The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), an agency within the USDA, inspects meat, poultry and processed egg products produced in federally inspected plants. FSIS is responsible for ensuring that these products are safe, wholesome and accurately labeled.
