Of course you could alternatively say the plant must just meet McDonald's standards.
Reader comment on: The USDA Versus Small Slaughterhouses
Submitted by Lyle (United States), May 24, 2010 18:22
Because of the concern that an E Coli outbreak would kill the company McDonalds has more strict regulations on slaughterhouses than the FDA. An interesting idea would be for McD to license its mark on frozen burgers that met its standards. (Frozen because McD only does frozen in the US). The general question asked is how many children will you kill because you don't have the stricter standards in place because people eat raw hamburger. (Note that hamburger tartar has vanished these days) and that rare hamburger comes with warnings now. Going down the road suggested leads to the food situation in China or in the US in the 1890s.
