retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Los Angeles Times reports that the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has opened an investigation into the Rancho Feeding Corp. of Petaluma, California, which has recalled "8.7 million pounds of beef products processed at its plant over the last year and sold in California and three other states."

According to the story, "Federal regulators said that the plant 'processed diseased and unsound animals' without a full federal inspection. As a result, the agency said, the 'products are ... unsound, unwholesome or otherwise are unfit for human food and must be removed from commerce'."
KC's View:
If these guys are determined to have willfully put these products into the food system, the punishment should be swift and simple - one year of eating but their own diseased meat.
