 “There is something fascinating about science.  One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.”  — Mark Twain


If only Mark Twain were alive today, he would have a field day commenting on what the U.S. Department of Agriculture considers to be “scientific”.  

Subsequent to the Jack In The Box E. coli outbreak in 1993, USDA desperately and hurriedly implemented the current Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) protocol of deregulated meat inspection.  HACCP was originally invented by Pillsbury, focused on the production of consistently safe food for NASA and the Army.  Pillsbury’s HACCP required “Kill Steps” during food production, meaning that the food had to be subjected to a kill step such as fully cooking or irradiation, effectively killing all pathogens.  Pillsbury’s HACCP system was truly based in science, and creates safe food.

USDA intentionally changed the Pillsbury protocol, but of course, retained the right to classify its HACCP imposter as allegedly being “science-based”.  USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) demands that all federally inspected plants implement USDA-style HACCP.  Thus, FSIS requires that HACCP be used for all raw meat and poultry, which by definition does not utilize kill steps, but still qualifies for USDA-style HACCP.

E.coli & the Gulf Oil Spill: Lessons to be Learned

If USDA’s Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) were assigned the responsibility to investigate the current oil spill in the gulf, and provide solutions, they would be as follows:

  1. 1.     Louisiana, Mississippi, and other states are responsible for the environmental degradation because they allowed contaminants to enter their boundaries.
  2. 2.    Petroleum is a contaminant only when it arrives at the destination, namely, the coastlines.  Prior to its arrival, petroleum is a relatively harmless minor irritant.
  3. 3.    Louisiana, Mississippi and other states must implement corrective actions to prevent future recurrences.
  4. 4.    BP is not liable for this impending catastrophe, because (a) BP is producing a legal commodity, and (b) all liability for this catastrophe must be assumed by the destination states.

Any sensible person would discredit the four statements above, More

Tester introduces Meat Safety and Accountability Act

Leave a comment


Please find below a Press Release issued by Senator Jon Tester this Wednesday, announcing his introduction of the “Meat Safety and Accountability Act“, aka “The Traceback Bill“.  If it passes, USDA would be forced to trace back to the slaughterhouse of origin of enteric bacteria, namely E.coli and Salmonella.  USDA has publicly admitted that it will NOT perform Tracebacks when agency-collected samples of ground beef are determined to be contaminated with E.coli.  Instead, USDA will only do tracebacks when E.coli-laced meat causes an outbreak.
