Unfortunately, not all of the small, local farmers are genuine in their meat production…
Whether big business or small, it seems as though the meat industry has a lot in common with the mafia. You’ll want to do your research and check the business out so that you don’t get involved in a story like this:
“A Grand Jury for the State of California indicted the owner and operator of a Portuguese-type sausage processing plant located in San Leandro, California, for the shooting deaths of two Federal officials, a State government inspector, and the attempted murder of another State inspector. The deaths occurred when the government officials were conducting a joint review at the sausage plant. The officials believed the plant and its owner were in violation of both Federal and State meat inspection laws. Months prior to the shootings, USDA inspection officials had suspended operations at the plant because of noncompliance with food safety and sanitation regulations.”
All of this over some contaminated Portuguese sausage… wow. I can understand why the USDA is scared to clean up the industry.
Have a beautiful weekend
