Sequestration could affect food inspections

Letter to the Editor

In a previous article, I wrote about the peanut scandal in Southeast Georgia. I stated that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) stamp was on all packaging before the product was inserted. It was rumored that some of the inspectors did their assessments and reports at a popular truck stop restaurant.

My point being, if this so-called sequester our government said might happen occurs, food inspectors would be one of the cuts.

I see portable restrooms next to the crops in some of the fields. I wish someone would pass a bill to add some kind of handwashing on the side of these portable potties.
