Description

This special investigative report from KCPT's Hale Center for Journalism explored the possible impact of a new federal regulation known as the “chicken rule” - that could be one of the most far reaching changes in U.S. meat inspection history. Weeks before it went into effect, reporter Mike McGraw investigated how the chicken rule will allow poultry plant employees — instead of USDA inspectors — to help determine whether chicken is contaminated or safe to eat. McGraw also investigated the impact of the severe shortage of federal inspectors in slaughterhouses - critics and some inspectors claimed some meat in supermarkets stamped as “USDA inspected” may never have been inspected at all.
