Breakfast Costs Rising, Food Inspectors Not Limited

  • Breakfast costs are rising according to a new Washington Post report.

    Paragon Economics President Steve Meyer says one reason for the increased bacon cost is Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV).

    The price of high-grade coffee beans from Brazil, supplying 46-percent of coffee beans, has increased 71.5-percent since the end of last year due to a drought that could wipe out 10-percent of Brazil’s coffee crop by 2020.

    There’s also a problem with orange juice.

  • A recent New York Times article claimed that job vacancies in the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) are leading to more food recalls which the agency says is not true.

    The fact is vacancies within the agency do not mean there are less inspectors on the job in our nation’s meat plants. FSIS is legally required to have a sufficient number of inspectors present in every single meat and poultry plant in the country.

    No plant in America is allowed to operate if it does not have the required number of safety inspectors in the plant at all times, and every plant currently operating in America has the necessary food inspection staff.
