    Not arguing your point there, I just don't know the answer to the question I asked. It might fall under dual jurisdiction, that might be the correct answer.

    I know, I'm not always in attack mode haha. FDA would have jurisdiction over the USDA, one would think. I think the FDA sets the food safety rules and the USDA enforces them (I'm speculating). I know when people find out they are being poisoned the FDA is the one that tells them everything is ok and to turn the Kardashians on and forget about it.

    the USDA grades meat, and is run for the benefit of its owners, corporate agri-biz.

    you know, those creative individuals whose mad-cow testing program is deliberately designed to never find it, ever.
    Pg. 324: "the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences."

    That is what I am thinking, switch to buying my meat from a small local packing plant rather than off the shelf at the grocer.

    I purchase my meat from Costco. I buy either NY strip or ribeye and cut to the thickness I want. vacuum pack and freeze. It's about two bucks a pound cheaper and then with the scraps I grind my own hamburger using the wife's Kitchen Aid mixer with a grinder attachment.

    If I am not mistaken, ammonia (which Beef Products uses on their hamburgers) kills any bacteria on the meat, probably also kills any nutrient value that is normally needed by us. Another reason to eat organic or at least know where you food comes from and stay away from processed food.
