Will Sequester Mean No More Meat?

February 11, 2013

The US political community remains fixated on the potential <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2013/02/10/solving-sequester-facts">sequester</a> that would result in across the board budget cuts. If those budget cuts actually occur, the US meat industry <a href="http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/eats/budget-cuts-force-entire-u-s-meat-industry-shut-article-1.1259543">might be unable</a> to sell meat. Why? Because if the USDA loses funding, it will not be able to inspect meat. If the meat can't be inspected, it can't be sold. Of course, if uninspected meat were sold, the potential for product recall claims would be significant.
