I read the headline of Julie Schmit’s article in USA TODAY and had the overwhelming desire to say “duhh!” as my 15-year-old often says of me to me. I then read further:
The federal government may move to keep meat off the market until its tests confirm the meat doesn’t have harmful bacteria, a step that officials say could have prevented some of this year’s 53 meat recalls. The U.S. Department of Agriculture, which regulates meat and poultry, may require meat producers to hold product that’s been routinely tested by the government until test results come back, says Kenneth Petersen, assistant administrator for the USDA. "It’s not in anybody’s interest to do all of these recalls."
“Test and Hold.” All that I can say is my daughter is right.
