In 6 Ways the Sequester Will Mess Up the Environment Zaineb Mohammed warns us ...

 Food safety: The Food Safety and Inspection Service's budget would be slashed by $51 million. This would result in a furlough of as much as 15 days for all employees, including 8,400 meat inspectors, as well as a loss of 2 billion pounds of meat, between 2.8 and 3.3 billion pounds of poultry, and over 200 million pounds of egg products. Meat shortages may also lead to price increases, leading to a domino effect on restaurants, grocers, and small businesses. There are also concerns that food safety "could be compromised by the illegal selling and distribution of uninspected meat, poultry, and egg products."
