Food activists feel this is not enough: The only progressive piece of Food Safety reform that has occurred in the Obama era, to date, is a ban on downer cows being allowed to be slaughtered and put into the food chain. Downer cows aren't cattle with depressive disorders, BTW, they're cattle that are too ill to walk the slaughtering line. Yep, before President Obama took office, sick cows were routinely winding up on dinner plates, both here at home and abroad. I'm astounded that this reform had to be made. As I said before, who needs terrorists when we have the National Cattlemen's Beef Association.
