18. And that is the Problem
The Department of Agriculture not only inspect beef, it also PROMOTES beef, and if one company tests every cow, consumers will pay a premium for that Company's beef. Most Beef producers just do NOT want to test and if ONE COMPANY tests all of them will have to sooner or later do to people willing to pay a premium for tested beefs. Just think about it,. Wendy's saying its Beef is 100% tested "safe", while McDonald's and Burger King does NOT, Wendy's could even raise its prices and still get more and more customers until McDonald's and Burger King does the same (And force ALL Beef producers to test). Thus to permit one to test means sooner or later ALL cows will have to be testes and thus the opposition to testing by the USDA.
