Food Safety

The U.S. has the safest food supply in the world — with multiple interlocking safeguards and extensive, daily product inspections by government officials. Producers and processors continue to invest a significant amount of time and money on scientific research to improve beef quality and safety.

TCFA supports continued cooperation between USDA and FDA and opposes the creation of a single food safety agency that would grant FDA additional authority to conduct inspections on ranches and the regulatory responsibilities over meat and meat products currently held by USDA.
