Several members of Congress have asked Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack to correct the public record and educate consumers about the safety of lean finely textured beef – LFTB. According to a letter – the 30 Representatives have been watching as the campaign of misinformation has unfolded. They note particular concern with the jobs that have been lost as a result. They also point to indications that the attacks on LFTB will cause beef prices to rise. They say that’s not just a problem for producers – but for every American who buys beef. The lawmakers are requesting that Vilsack provide them with the steps USDA plans to take to set the record straight.
