Presently, the FDA is able to inspect about one percent of food shipments into the U.S. What can consumers do? Start yelling at your Senators and Representatives. This is one issue they are afraid to duck if the heat is on them. Second, buy from farmers and other producers near you, so you can skip the long chain of middlemen from China to your area who could have caught the problem but just pass the buck, so to speak
Ralph is right on this one. A few months ago I started buying my meat and dairy from Artisan Foods Delivered and I have been very happy with that choice. When I grab a jar of hot relish, a carton of eggs, or a whole chicken I know the exact farm these products came from.
