Food Policy & LawE. Coli Confessions Part I
by John Munsell | Oct 11, 2011
Editor's Note: This is the first part in a series written by John Munsell of Miles City, MT, who explains how the small meat plant his family owned for 59 years ran afoul of USDA's meat inspection program. The events he writes about began a decade ago, but remain relevant today.
They say that confession is good for the soul. I've been involved in a series of ugly events since my plant in 2002 recalled 270 pounds of ground beef contaminated with E.coli O157:H7 and now want to admit the embarrassing truth for public review. more

Education is the foundation of good citizenship and good citizenship is essential to good government.
Agriculture groups are voicing their support for country-of-origin labeling on meat to ensure the protection of America’s family farmers, consumers and farm animals. Members of eight state agriculture councils of The Humane Society of the United States signed a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman urging him to appeal the World Trade Organization’s recent decision against the U.S. COOL rule.
The COOL regulations require that meat products contain labels specifying where the livestock was born, raised and slaughtered. Labeling provides consumers with important information in the marketplace, and helps consumers who want to buy from U.S. family farmers and ranchers, rather than industrial corporations that may commingle meat products from several foreign countries.
The letter was signed by HSUS State Agriculture Council members in Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio and Oklahoma.
