Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has presented a bill that would amend USDA inspection rules to mandate pathogen treatment and expand labeling requirements on meat and poultry.

It would make amendments to the Poultry Products Inspection Act, the Federal Meat Inspection Act and the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, prohibiting the sale of any processed poultry, meat and Food and Drug Adminstration-regulated food that has not either undergone a pathogen reduction treatment, or been "certified to contain no verifiable traces of pathogens."

If passed, the legislation also would require labels on any ground meat product that lists every cut of meat that is used to make up the product, and eliminate "loopholes in current laws" that allow processors to add coloring, synthetic fla vorings and spices to products without informing the consumer.
