    This has been making it's way around the internet for a few weeks now. It is a bunch of crap. I think some people need something else to do.

    Yes, a bunch of crap. I worked in an industry that was regulated by the USDA and FDA. The interactions taught me great restraint out of necessity. Some of the inspectors were top level, quality professionals. Others were-----

    Some of the story seems kind of fishy to me - they have an inspector show up dirty and they don't even get the name? Odd...

    Quote:I agree with you - snopes shows nothing and neither does truthorfiction.com. However, I have no heard this outrageous story on any major news outlets.

    It was on Fox news. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the liberal mass media to cover it. [​IMG] It's been on MO/KS news too.

    I applaud Sen. McCaskill for getting involved with this. Ridiculous fines for selling rabbits, armed raids on farmers selling raw milk... it's appalling. [​IMG]

    As one person put it -

    Mistake number 1: Talking with the USDA.
    Mistake number 2: Letting the USDA onto your property.

    Unless it's a cop with a warrant, do not under any circumstances allow anyone associated with the government onto your property. You will regret it.
