CitationThe Department of Agriculture's Regulation of Poultry Under the Poultry Products Inspection Act of 1957 (1997 Third Year Paper)
AbstractThe purpose of this paper is to investigate the reasons how conflicts between the USDA and FDA create obstacles to effective public health policy exist in the United States. I will begin my investigation by briefly outlining the earlier chronology of meat regulation in the United States. When I reach the period of time in which poultry inspection became mandatory, I will engage in a more in depth historical analysis of the reasons why the system which prevails today developed as it did. This portion of the paper is based largely upon Congressional hearings, reports, and floor debate. I will then conclude by noting proposals for reform and offer my own assessment of division of food regulation between USDA and FDA.
