2. But I thought the recent problem was mad cow in both FL and CA. That's a feed problem, not packing.

the USA can get rid of factory farming. If not, there's vegetarianism and veganism. Millions of people around the world don't eat meat and living well and don't take these risks. We don't have to put up with these dangerous practices.

I'm not sure what this fast tracking means in the field. I read the process would be privatized. That fails because of a conflict of interest.

Regulators should be somewhat adversarial in enforcing regulations. And more people need to be hired for these jobs, not contracted out to the companies.

These event are likely the result of two things. The push to end regulation of everything since the Reagan era. And the increased population, urbanization and pressure on producers of all kinds of food. Surely we can do better than this.
