Almost makes me sick thinking about them disinfecting with toxic chemicals and speeding up things! More risk of Salmonella! When you watch things and being the same things a long time you are bound to NOT see what you SHOULD see! If anything should slow things down some. But then they really want to make more money!???
Things happen in these plants we have seen videos of some plants! But using company people for inspectors could be WRONG TOO! They may be PAID TO TURN THEIR HEADS!??? WE NEED BETTER REGULATIONS!!! NOT WORSE!
Thank You Carrie

Scary info. Used to love chicken, but haven't had it for a while now...never again with those chemicals being used.
