In less than two months, dirty pork is coming to a grocery store near you – unless we stop it.
According to the Trump administration’s new food safety inspection rule, the Department of Agriculture is almost entirely relinquishing its role in ensuring food safety for the American people.
The new final rule takes effect Dec. 2 – just in time for the holidays.
Our union worked with members of Congress to include a provision in the House Agriculture Appropriations bill that would halt this dirty pork rule until the Department of Agriculture's inspector general has studied the data used to create the new rule. The bill passed the House but has to be agreed to by the Senate.
