Next week will be the first Canadian check USDA has conducted in over three years and it comes in the middle of the Canada's biggest meat recall in history, so this portends to be a big deal. The fact that Canada has not had an audit visit in over three years immediately sent red flags up for me. It was another example of how Canada has received special treatment from USDA over the years that I believe can jeopardize the health and safety of U.S. consumers. With that as a historical backdrop and with the massive XL Foods recalls still on everyone's minds, what are the Canadian and U.S. governments proposing? Deregulation of the border inspection system. Food safety is not an area that should be deregulated. History dictates that we should strengthen and not weaken the food safety inspection system. Trade should not trump food safety.
