Will Sequester Mean No More Meat?

The US political community remains fixated on the potential sequester that would result in across the board budget cuts. If those budget cuts actually occur, the US meat industry might be unable to sell meat. Why? Because if the USDA loses funding, it will not be able to inspect meat. If the meat can’t be inspected, it can’t be sold. Of course, if uninspected meat were sold, the potential for product recall claims would be significant.
