Oh crap (literally): USDA to privatize poultry inspection?

A couple of my girls in the backyard.
I just wanted you to know about this:

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) currently inspects all chicken and turkey carcasses for things like bruises, bile and feces before they are sent to further processing. However, the UDSA is now considering a pilot program that would eliminate that inspection and allow private poultry processing plants to do whatever they want.

The USDA is holding a public commenting period on this proposed change right now. Please sign the petition opposing the privatization of poultry inspection before the public commenting period ends.

That's why I signed a petition to United State Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Will you sign this petition? Click here:

If you signed, too, let me know.  And thanks!
