USA: Statement by the National Chicken Council on U.S. district court ruling upholding HIMP
We are pleased with the U.S. District Court ruling that the USDA's HACCP-Based Inspection Models Program (HIMP), as modified, meets the requirements of the federal law governing meat and poultry inspection. The existing inspection program has changed little since it was instituted more than 40 years ago. Poultry companies use modern methods to ensure the production of safe and wholesome products, and a modernized inspection system is also needed.
The National Chicken Council is the Washington-based trade association for integrated chicken producer-processors. Member companies of NCC produce, process and market more than 90 percent of the chicken sold in the United States.
