Food Safety Risks
Not only would food programs for the elderly and nutrition programs for women and children be cut, but the number of food safety inspectors would be reduced. In effect, this could close meat and poultry plants if there aren’t enough USDA personnel available to conduct necessary inspections. Not having assistance programs in place or enough inspectors available puts the health and well-being of all Americans at serious risk.
