Meat processors worried over proposed safety rules

From The DesMoines Register:

Washington, D.C. — Federal regulators are proposing new meat testing requirements that small processors say would impose staggering new costs and force businesses to drop products or go out of business.The U.S. Agriculture Department says the new rules are needed to ensure that meat lockers are keeping dangerous bacteria out of their products.In a recent letter to the industry, the USDA said that a "demonstrated failure" by processors to ensure they had proper safety measures had led to a series of recalls involving pork barbecue, sausages and other products.
