The failures of the USDA in making a safe and humane food system


After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Great article! It's about the failures of the USDA, their lack of oversight and enforcement for the humane treatment of animals, as well as food safety. Scary, horrible stuff.

But, as the article points out, at least there are improvements being made under the Obama administration. Things seem to possibly be on the right track (as opposed to under the Bush administration).

Also, super happy that The Nation published this type of article. Magazines keep track of the amount of clicks articles get, so please check out the link.
