Government called on to slow down meatpacking lines

The Lincoln Journal-Star reports that the Nebraska Appleseed Center called for government regulation that would require meatpacking companies to slow down production lines.

NAC is  concerned that food safety is compromised when production lines move too quickly for line workers to properly assess risks. 

Milo Mumgaard, executive director of the public policy center, urged Secretary of Agriculture Mike Johanns to “require the industry to slow down.”

It is Johanns’ job to “ensure our hamburgers — and the workers who process them — are as safe as they can be,” Mumgaard said. “Slowing down the line is a great place to start.”
