To the Editor:
According to the lead story in yesterday’s Washington Post, the meat inspection program that the US Department of Agriculture plans to roll out in meat and poultry plants nationwide has repeatedly failed to stop production of contaminated meat. The program allows meat producers to increase the speed of processing lines and replace U.S.D.A. safety inspectors with their own employees.
